Shadow Days

Bard Baltimore’s Shadow Day Information

Your High School Choice application is just around the corner and what better way to decide which school will help you reach your goals than to register for a Shadow Day at Bard High School Early College. It’s true, here at Bard, we make it possible for students to earn both a high school diploma and up to 60 transferable college credits tuition-free in the liberal arts and sciences made possible through our partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools.

When you Shadow at Bard, you will spend a half-day with one of our Student Ambassadors as they go through their daily schedule. “Shadows” need to bring a notebook/paper, pen and pencil and are expected to wear appropriate attire and be attentive, active participants in class.

Please note that same day shadow requests are not permitted. Shadow days are scheduled at least a week in advance.

Our Shadow Day program is now open to all applicants. Applicants who are interested in scheduling a shadow day at Bard, can follow this link to our sign-up page. All dates have been posted. Shadow Days are limited to one per student. You must be an eighth grade student who lives in Baltimore City to register. Shadow days are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Once you have confirmed your shadow day sign up, the Admissions Team will be in touch within 48 hours by email for additional information.

Your student will be assigned to a Student Ambassador, you can indicate a preference of student to be paired with, but final pairings are done by the Admissions Department.
