The goal of the Bard High School Early College Student Activities Center (SAC) is to enhance the student experience outside the classroom.  By supporting student led groups, connecting students to internships and service opportunities and fostering a positive school culture through community building activities, the SAC works to provide students with engaging and meaningful experiences throughout their time at BHSEC.

The SAC is important to students’ success at BHSEC because it provides both the support and guidance needed by teens to identify and cultivate their interests, develop leadership skills and become effective collaborators.  Resources available through the SAC complement BHSEC’s rigorous academic curriculum by connecting students to extracurricular opportunities within school and across the city, better preparing them to make informed college and career choices going forward.
