Tours and Information Sessions Fall 2021

We have a variety of in-person and virtual events scheduled so that you and your family can get to know us better. These events will happen throughout December 2021 and January 2022. Please only register for one event so that all families have an opportunity to attend. Registration will be live on this page starting on Monday, November 29th, 2021 at 10 am.

Virtual Robot Tours

Please join us as we take a ride with our robots and hear from our current student ambassadors! Families will have an opportunity to walk virtually with us using two of our self-driving, two-wheeled, videoconferencing robots while hearing from current students about their experience at Bard Queens!

Tour features the opportunity to meet current students in-depth and meet with administration and staff. You will also have an opportunity to see our building from your computer/phone. Duration: 45 minutes – 1 hour

Note: We realize these tours happen when most people are working or in school but we wanted to give you a glimpse of what the building is like when class is in session. We hope you can join us but if not we will post some recordings soon.

In-Person Tours

Please join our Student Ambassadors who are current students at Bard Queens for an in-person walking tour of our building. These tours happen after school, are an hour long, and begin at 4:15 pm (with the exception of the ones happening on Saturdays). All adults entering our building must bring ID and proof of vaccination.

Evening Virtual Information Sessions

Please join our admin and staff for an evening of getting to know our school and community. You’ll hear from several staff at our school and learn about the history and overview of our school. There will be time for questions and answers.

  • We are holding off on scheduling these until we receive additional information from the Department of Education on admissions. We will email families once we have dates finalized. Thank you for your patience.

Virtual Special Education Information Sessions 2021-2022

For families interested in learning about the special education program and services at Bard High School Early College Queens.

This social story is a resource that has been created to provide information on how to access Bard HS Early College Queens during pre-COVID time. This resource will help you plan your visit in advance and explain how to access the building, what to expect when you enter, and who to ask for assistance. This social story is specific to the Thursday, October 24th, 2019 event.

The insideschools website also offers a nice article with advice for visiting high schools. Please see Five special education questions to ask on HS tours.

The BHSEC schools have had great success to date with a small number of students receiving SE services and we are looking to expand our offerings and the number of students served. Perhaps BHSEC is right for you!

Students requiring special education services can expect the following:
