I recently had the privilege of having an admissions representative from Bard College at Simon’s Rock, MA pay me a visit at my office. She was in the greater Milwaukee area to scout out what some of our local high schools are like and whether there is an interest on the part of some students in our area to attend “Early College.”
This is a very unique concept that is open to students who, for a variety of reasons, feel ready for a college environment before they have finished high school. Some students actually begin at the College as early as their sophomore year in high school. Anyone interested in exploring what this is about should contact me for more information. THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT FOR MOST STUDENTS, regardless of how strong a student is academically, as for most young people, high school is a highly valuable experience.
