The Academy occupies an intimate setting with inspiring facilities located on the Boston/New York City/Washington corridor along a beautiful, unspoiled stretch of the Connecticut shoreline in the culturally rich village of Old Lyme.

From the Academy it is only a two-hour trip to New York City or Boston: less than an hour from world-class museums in New Haven and Hartford; and close to emerging arts communities in nearby urban centers. Dedicated art students could not ask for a more inspiring, friendly, supportive, and safe environment than our campus community.
