"Simon's Rock is a great school for students who are exceptional learners. Most Rockers think outside of the box and question norms. If you're a great learner and love challenges, then Simon's Rock might be a good fit for you. Most of your classmates will be 11 to 16 year olds. It's an early college -- you can earn an AA (two years) or a bachelor's degree. Most people transfer after their first or second year since Simon's Rock is a stepping stone."

"Bard College at Simon's Rock is the only early college in the world. This college changed my entire life for the better. I started here at the young age of 16 and would not change this experience for the world. The goal of this college is to challenge your academic capabilities beyond belief. You will be pushed outside of your comfort zone to think differently and to excel. The class sizes here never really exceed 10 to 15 students which means you get to establish a great and personal relationship with your professors and fellow classmates. They have a great library filled with useful books and state of the art computers and you are able to print paper for free. The dining hall serves very healthy and delicious food. While here, I studied science with some of the toughest professors I have ever met. I found myself always keeping busy because we were assigned lots of projects, research, and challenging homework. This is the type of education that you want. The students that attend Simon's Rock are intelligent, hard working, and embrace challenges. My senior year at this college I wrote an incredibly long thesis which I never thought I could accomplish had it not been for Simon's Rock. This college is incredibly safe, highly culturally diverse, and financially supportive. I got a scholarship to attend this college and don't think I would have been able to come here if not for the support of Simon's Rock and the incredible alumni who donate to the school. After graduating from Simon's Rock my career path has been made much better and I am in the process of applying to graduate school."
