Bard Academy is high school, reimagined.

Located on the campus of Bard College at Simon’s Rock, an early college in the heart of the Berkshires, Bard Academy is a small, supportive independent school with all of the resources of a college. That means access to our community gardens and research labs, our library, art studios, and theater spaces, as well as a range of activities, clubs and sports teams. It also means that students work closely with dedicated teachers who are also accomplished scholars, and with residential and resource staff whose focus is on nurturing student success in an early college setting.

We haven’t condensed the high school experience; instead, we’ve created a program that takes a collegiate approach to learning from day one. After the 10th grade, all students in good academic and social standing are admitted to Bard College at Simon’s Rock. In and out of the classroom, students are learning to live together in a community where original thinking, intellectual curiosity, and diverse perspectives are celebrated. Imagine that.


Hands-On Montessori School

Established in 2003, HOMS is a small, private coeducational Montessori day school that services families with children ages 18 months to 9 years (or toddler through third grade).

Mission Statement

Hands-On Montessori School  is a community of children, families, and teachers dedicated to inspiring and nurturing the development of each student’s independence, self-confidence, self-respect, and creativity, enabling each child to reach his/her full potential as a global citizen and life-long learner. Hands-On Montessori School facilitates this development by embracing the philosophy and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori in harmony with other developmentally appropriate, innovative teaching practices.

We encourage students to become engaged and excited with their schoolwork through active learning. Students are encouraged to pursue studies in all areas of their spontaneous personal interest using hands-on “experiential” learning through concrete manipulative learning materials, experimental discovery, and group experiences. Hands-On Montessori School is committed to both high standards of individual academic achievement while at the same time respecting the child’s human dignity and well-being.
