The Bard High School Early College Manhattan PTA is an organization that extends free membership exclusively to BHSEC Manhattan families, faculty and staff. BHSEC Manhattan PTA is governed by our corporate bylaws and the New York City Department of Education regulation A-660. Our mission is three-fold:
We support students, parents, faculty of Bard High School Early College/Manhattan so our children can excel. Since our school offers a rigorous curriculum that includes a two-year college program, we focus on strong communication and education of our parent body. We engage subject matter experts as speakers and panels to share knowledge and ideas.
We advocate for our parents and students at large to bring about positive change. Our advocacy helps improve and upgrade our BHSEC experience by designing and implementing sustainable solutions as they are identified or to resolve issues raised by our constituents.
We conduct fundraising activities to fund our mission of supporting students, parents and faculty of BHSEC.
