Walnut Hill does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, family structure, pregnancy, parental status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, genetic information, age, national or ethnic origin, disability, economic background, veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable state and federal law.

    95% of our senior class matriculates to a four-year degree program directly after graduation.

    Among our alumni working in the arts, we are pleased to count television and Broadway actors, multiple Princess Grace Award winners, published novelists, Grammy Award–winning musicians, fashion designers, and other notables.

    Our students benefit from the more individualized attention afforded by a 6:1 student-faculty ratio.

    Our student population represents 31 of the United States and 17 countries.
