Walnut Hill School for the Arts

Schedule A Visit

We invite you to visit Walnut Hill School for the Arts to meet our outstanding students and faculty and tour our campus!

A visit to campus is an important part of the admission process, as it allows you to get to know Walnut Hill and for us to get to know you better! We encourage you to visit us in Natick, Massachusetts so that you can see first-hand what makes Walnut Hill such a special place. If you are unable to come to campus, we can schedule a Skype interview for you and your family. 

You should expect to be on campus between 2 and 3 hours on the day of your visit.

Ready to schedule your visit?  Call the Admission Office at 508-650-5020 or email us at

If you have not yet completed an inquiry form, you can do so here.

Tours of Campus

During your visit to Walnut Hill, you and your family will take a tour of campus with one of our current students. You may be on a tour with another student also considering Walnut Hill. Our student tour guides will give you a walking tour of campus and are ready to answer any questions you might have.


An interview is a required part of the admission process, during which you will meet with a member of the Admission Office one-on-one. While your interviewer may have some specific questions, we hope that it is a conversation for us to learn more about you and for you to learn more about us. Also, we love it when students ask questions about our programs and our community!

After you meet with your interviewer, your family will have the chance to meet with your interviewer alone to ask any questions they may have.

Auditions/Portfolio Reviews

Each art major has specific requirements for the audition/portfolio review process. You can find more details about that here. Many students choose to complete their audition or portfolio review on the day of their visit. We know this can be the most nerve-wracking part of our admission process. It can also be the most fun! You will have the chance to connect with faculty in the major to which you are applying. They are interested in getting to know you, and they love answering questions about their programs!

Attending a Performance

We invite families to attend any of the numerous performances, art shows, readings, and special events put on throughout the school year. We are happy to offer you complimentary tickets to a performance of your choice. Please refer to our calendar to find a full listing of performances, and then contact the Admission Office at 508.650.5020 or to reserve tickets.
