It's not every day that students start college early, but this Wilton resident is no ordinary student.
This year, Fiona O'Halloran joined the fall 2020 class at Bard College at Simon's Rock in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, the nation's first early college. 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.
O'Halloran's academic and personal achievements stood out, securing Fiona a spot at Simon's Rock this fall. The college is home to about 400 students who engage in a rigorous liberal arts and sciences curriculum and graduate from college one or two years ahead of their peers.
