Bard College at Simon's Rock is an early college with “more selective” admissions where high school students can enroll before graduation. The average age at entry is 16. Simon’s Rock is based in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and provides a liberal arts education in 35+ concentrations (BCSR’s version of majors). On the 275-acre campus is the Liebowitz Center for International Studies which provides global courses, study abroad, and international programs. Also at students’ disposal is the Fisher Science and Academic Center which, among much else, features a greenhouse.
Even though it is the most stress a person can endure, any amount of time at this school is worth it. The professors are incredible and have so much wisdom to share. The community of students also makes every class a unique experience.
the teachers are great; the administration is for the most part very good. student life on campus is very active. great barrington consists essentially of main street and a few small streets adjoining to it, and can sometimes be boring.
