Description: This position paper written by Mary B. Marcy (2006 provost & vice president of the College), and posted on the website of Simon's Rock College of Bard, points out the benefits of exposing gifted teenagers to a college-level education by the age of 16. The author states the goal of an early college program is to stimulate these students and not allow for a wasted final two years of high school. The argument for early college is fully supported with a detailed list of personal and academic advantages, as well.
