Bard Manhattan has ONE of their TWO fall open house dates up on their website: October 16 at 5:30pm.
The great news about this is that they’ve generally held only one open house and getting tickets to that is harder than getting tickets to the Rolling Stones back in the day. They let you know in advance when their sign ups go live - I’ll keep you posted when they share that info. They also host separate sessions for IEP families. In the past that has been on the same day as the open house, but you have to register separately.
While you can’t sign up for this yet and there’s no guarantee you’re going to get a spot at these open houses, you might want to jot potential dates down somewhere, so you don’t double book. I met with a HS411 parent yesterday and I mentioned that in the thick of things, unless you’re organized going in, it’s easy, in the moment, to sign up for something and later realize you had another tour or your kid had SHSAT prep or there was something else going on that slipped your mind in that frantic moment.
