Millis Student Cherry Farrar Accepted to Bard Academy at Simon’s Rock

It’s not every day that high school students break with tradition to attend a school that prepares them to enter college after the 10th grade, but for this Millis, MA student, that’s exactly the case. This year, Cherry Farrar joined the fall 2020 class at Bard Academy at Simon’s Rock, the nation’s first two-year high school for boarding and day students. Simon’s Rock successfully created a safe, socially distanced learning environment this semester, with primarily in-person classes as well as hybrid and remote offerings.

Farrar’s academic and personal achievements stood out, securing Cherry a spot at Bard Academy this fall. Farrar will automatically matriculate into Bard College at Simon’s Rock after 10th grade, establishing a clear path for continued intellectual engagement and success.
