Age doesn’t define intellect. Our mission is to inspire the curiosity and creativity of motivated younger scholars with a challenging, empowering, and inclusive education in the liberal arts and sciences.
At Bard Academy, you will be in it with both feet from the day you arrive on campus. You won’t spend your critical years of adolescence and young adulthood preparing to apply to college. Instead, you will maximize this period of your life with access to resources like professors who are ready to engage with you in challenging discussion — and even conduct research alongside you. There’s no rush, but at Bard Academy, you can complete both high school and college in six years rather than eight, and head off to graduate school or straight out to change the world.
Tuition includes instruction, academic support, and access to all campus facilities. The Student Activity and Health Services Fees are required of all boarding and day students.
Nearly 80% of our students at Bard Academy receive some form of financial aid. We encourage interested families to apply. Financial awards for incoming students are available to ensure that the advantages of a Bard Academy education are as accessible as possible. Working together with your family and the online School and Student Services (SSS) financial aid system, we will determine eligibility for aid that best reflects your specific family circumstances.
Bard Academy financial aid comes in the form of grants and scholarships. Upon entry into the college program, students may become eligible to apply for federal financial aid.
If you are a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident, please create an account with School and Student Services (SSS) to apply for financial aid consideration. Bard Academy’s code is 174896.
