About us

The mission of BHSEC is to provide a rigorous course of study that emphasizes thinking through writing, discussion, and inquiry. This alternative to the traditional high school is founded on the belief that many young people are ready and eager to do serious college work at age sixteen. Based on the premise that these young adults' ambition to learn must be taken seriously, BHSEC's four-year program enables highly motivated students to earn a New York State high school Regents diploma and a tuition-free Bard College associate's degree in four years.

Love of learning dominates the culture of BHSEC at both the Manhattan and Queens campuses. Our rigorous curriculum allows students to fulfill all of the Regents requirements through an engaging and demanding college-level education. Mastery of subjects at BHSEC is demonstrated by our students reasoned analysis and by their thoughtful and well-supported cases for their views. Ninety-five percent of BHSEC graduates successfully move on to a four-year college.
