Urban Assembly School of Music and Art

Create. Empower. Imagine.


We are pleased to announce a new partnership starting in the spring of 2018:

The Bard Early College Academy at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art Bard@UAMA

The Bard Early College Academy at the Urban Assembly School of Music and Art (UAMA) enables UAMA students in 11th and 12th grade to enroll as part-time undergraduate students of Bard College and earn tuition-free college credits concurrently with their high school studies. Participating students take a liberal arts college course of study that aims to intellectually engage UAMA students and help them prepare for and succeed in college.

The Bard Early College Academy establishes a satellite campus of Bard College at the UAMA. College courses are taught by Bard Early College faculty, and take place on the UAMA campus within the UAMA course schedule. Additionally, students participate in field trips, including conferences and academic events on the Bard College campus in Annandale-on-Hudson, and joint programming with Bard’s other early colleges in the tri-state area. Upon completion of the Bard Seminar sequence, UAMA students have the opportunity to earn as much as sixteen Bard College credits, tuition-free.
