Pre-Baccalaureate at Barnard
Our Flagship Pre-College Experience
Pre-Baccalaureate Program (Sunday, June 27 - Thursday, July 22)
We're bringing Barnard to you! Immerse yourself in a 4 week virtual course and earn college credit. For high school juniors and seniors, and gap year students.
How It Works
Students enroll in one 3-credit course taught by a member of Barnard's world renowned faculty. Courses are held synchronously via Zoom, run for 4 weeks long and are fast paced and rigorous. Outside of the classroom students are part of our virtual Barnard community and will participate in college readiness workshops, career exploration panels, and evening social activities such as paint nights, virtual scavenger hunts, and social justice discussions.
Tuition & Aid
Helping students realize their dream of a Barnard summer is top priority of our office. We offer rolling admissions to help students get a jump start on their summer planning and are able to offer a limited amount need based financial aid to students who qualify.
Courses will be announced in late January 2021.
One of the main draws for me about going to Barnard was the ability to be on a subway and be able to rush to a Broadway show and still be able to get back to class. Going to school in New York City has allowed me to be a fly on the wall of professional theater.

One of my favorite things to do is to go out to the different restaurants, and because New York City is such a diverse place there’s a lot of cultural experience you can get from just tasting the food.
