Opening the Door to Artistic Careers

Walnut Hill School for the Arts

In 1893, two Wellesley College graduates founded the Walnut Hill School for the Arts, a private boarding school for girls. In the 1970s, Walnut Hill transitioned into a coeducational, independent school for the arts. The school requires all students to major in one of five disciplines: dance; theater; visual art; music; or writing, film, and media arts. Students take courses in their specialization in the afternoons and early evenings, and spend the mornings exploring a range of subjects including mathematics, history, and science. This blend of coursework enables students to engage in intensive pre-professional training as well as a rigorous academic curriculum.
