Welcome New Students!
Congratulations on your acceptance to Bard High School Early College (BHSEC). We are delighted that you will be joining us in the fall.
We start the fall semester with a Writing and Thinking Workshop where you will work closely with a small group of students and one of our teachers. You will learn to read and listen more thoughtfully, to articulate ideas, to review your own work critically and, most basically, to recognize the link between thought and expression.
Schools will receive High School Admissions Round 1 results beginning Monday, March 18th 2019. Please contact your guidance counselor for specific questions.
Congratulations on your acceptance to Bard High School Early College Queens, BHSECQ!

We are eager to welcome you to our school, and we invite you to sit in on two academic classes with choices that include courses in two of the following: math, science, humanities and arts. The time slots for possible visits are 8:45 – 10:45 am, 10:35 – 12:35 pm, or 1:20 – 3:20 pm. Please note that these visits are completely optional and are only meant to help you make an informed decision.
