Bard Manhattan open house sign ups start on 4/20:
This will likely start at 10am, as they have in the past. I had to laugh about the last day to register is 4/30 as spots on this particular open house sell out in minutes.
If you are going to one of the Bard queens tours or to the open house you don't need to go to this. The curriculums and set ups are the same. Your child will get to see the school itself during testing if they're interested in applying. This is one school that requires additional testing for their screen. If your child does well on the test then they are invited back for an additional interview.
Last year Bard was still interviewing kids well into January even though applications were due back at the DOE early December. Unfortunate glitch.
