Open Houses and Information Sessions

Open House and Information Sessions

We are currently working with the NYC Department of Education on a plan for 2020-2021 admissions with safety and equity in mind. The Department of Education has asked us to wait before we implement the plan we have submitted to them. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

In the meantime please submit your contact information using this form. When we are ready to proceed with our plan, we will send you an email with next steps.

Spring Tours 2020 have been cancelled.

We will have student led tours from 4 – 5 pm.  Please arrive on time as tours begin promptly at 4 pm.

Spring Open House 2020 has been cancelled.

Prospective students and their parents may visit BHSEC Queens during an Open House or on a tour to find out more about the school. Due to high demand, families can choose between an open house or a tour, but should not plan to attend both. Our open houses include presentations by our faculty whereas our tours do not. Our tours are student-led.

Registration is not required.

  • Dates TBD 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Please keep in mind that attending an open house or tour is not a requirement for admission to BHSEC. Students are not penalized in any way during the admissions process by not visiting BHSEC prior to applying. 

Special Education Information Session 2020 has been cancelled.

For families to learn about the special education opportunities 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. 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 event.

Registration is not required but we would like to make sure we have everything set up for your visit. You can sign up HERE to let us know if you need any accommodations for your visit to our school. 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.
