Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Admission

Welcome to Walnut Hill!

Do you think your high school experience should look different? We think so.

At Walnut Hill, you don’t need to relegate the practice of your art to an after school activity, nor do you need to force your high school education to take a backseat to artistic pursuits. At Walnut Hill, you get to have it all. 

We offer unparalleled training in dance; music; theater; visual art; and writing, film & media arts, complemented by a robust and innovative academic curriculum. Every aspect of our program helps you to grow as a bold artist, curious learner, and mindful citizen. 

Virtual Campus Tour


We’re located on a beautiful 45-acre campus half an hour outside the cultural center of Boston. Watch a video tour and “walk” the campus, view classrooms, dance, visual art and music studios, theaters, our dining hall and campus center, and more.
