This is the biggest misconception about Walnut Hill. We believe that the training you receive in the arts will set you up for a lifetime of success. Our graduates represent a wide range of professions–from professional artists to doctors and lawyers. The path you choose is entirely up to you.
We look for students who have a strong commitment to their academics, their art, and their personal growth. You should be prepared to grow and be challenged during your time at Walnut Hill. You will work hard and also have fun!
The day is intentionally designed so that you can dive deeply into your chosen major. We have recently launched a new program called Art360 that allows you to explore another art form in a weekly class.
The Early Decision Deadline is November 1 (with an audition/portfolio review & interview deadline of December 1). The Regular Decision Deadline is January 15 (with an audition/portfolio review & interview deadline of March 1).
We encourage you to begin the process during the Fall prior to the one you want to enroll, keeping in mind our Early Decision and Regular Decision Deadlines. A member of the Admission Office is happy to help guide you through the process.
Our College Counseling Office will work closely with you and your family through the college/conservatory admissions process. Our graduates continue their studies at some of the most prestigious and selective colleges, universities, conservatories, and companies around the world.
