Walnut Hill School for the Arts is a private boarding and day high school for grades 9 through 12. Located in scenic Natick, Massachusetts, just outside the vibrant city of Boston, Walnut Hill provides students with the unique opportunity to live, work, and study in a diverse community of individuals united by their passion for making and celebrating art.

Walnut Hill students immerse themselves deeply in their art, guided by highly accomplished professional artists who have dedicated themselves to supporting young people on their artistic journeys. This time spent mastering an artistic discipline is balanced by engagement in a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum that challenges students to ask big questions, solve complex problems, and explore traditional academic subjects through innovative, hands-on lessons.

Guided by our core values of community, growth, excellence, creativity and respect, faculty and staff at Walnut Hill are dedicated to preparing students to succeed in the arts, in their future studies, and in their lives. By nurturing the whole person, we are able to well-equip our graduates to matriculate to some of the leading colleges, universities, art schools, training programs, and conservatories in the world.
