A new Bronx high school is opening its doors in September, helping graduates accumulate college credits cost-free.  
Bard High School-Early College offers Bronx scholars the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma, 60 transferrable college credits and even an associate degree.  
Faculty told News 12 that the school is partnering with Montefiore-Einstein College to introduce students to biomedical science, research and other career pathways.  
“We’re just excited again to introduce students to the possibility of the future,” said Dr. Lynn Holden, of Montefiore-Einstein College.  
Bard High School-Early College programs already are up and running in Queens and Manhattan, and now Bronx students looking to get a step ahead for college and their adult lives can do so in their home borough.
