Walnut Hill is committed to advocating, promoting, and supporting diversity and inclusion in all areas of campus life. Our Diversity Committee works collaboratively with the entire community to encourage students, staff, and faculty to grow in their own understanding of diversity and inclusion. One of the ways in which the committee does this is by inviting special guests to campus for speaking or teaching events. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we hosted Dr. Anthony Trecek-King as a guest speaker for a special all-School Assembly.
- MLK Day
On Sunday, February 3, the entire Walnut Hill community headed to New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall for the afternoon, where we enjoyed a live taping of NPR’s From the Top in celebration of Walnut Hill’s 125th Anniversary.

One of the many great things about Walnut Hill’s diverse community is that we have a chance to celebrate a wide array of cultural traditions that are meaningful to members of our student body. Recently, we had the opportunity to observe Lunar New Year (one of the biggest celebrations in the world).

All students commit to a full-time, college-preparatory curriculum in addition to studies in their elected arts concentration.
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.
Located just 17 miles— a 30-minute car or train ride—from downtown Boston, Walnut Hill offers access to the rich educational, cultural, and recreational offerings of a world-class city.
