    I am in my third month of being in a catholic school in the
    massachusetts area. Lately, at my school theres been some not-so
    nice things going on ( i wont talk about them, you wouldnt wanna
    know)So, becuase of that little happening, im looking towards
    transfering to a different private school. I was contemplating
    different schools when I thought about schools for the arts. I was
    told about a school somewhere, a tuition free boarding high school
    for the arts. But i can’t remember what it was, and im currently out
    of contact with the person that gave me that information. So im
    wondering if anyone knows of a non-profit high school for the
    arts….anywhere in america. I am positive that I am going to major
    in harp for college. thanks!

    Steve- I think Walnut Hill(in Natick I think) is an arts school.

    There’s one in Philadelphia that I believe is a public school.

    If you are fairly advanced in your playing, then you should consider auditioning for the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Believe it or not, they do accept students younger than college-age. They move to Philadelphia and attend regular schools, and Curtis provides their music education tuition-free. You might inquire about a scholarship to the Phillips-Andover Academy which has a very good harp instructor, Emily Lewis. Or else you might be able to find a public school that is better.

    I went to Baltimore School for the Arts in Baltimore, MD. It’s a public school so it’s free, but you have to audition to get in.
