Snapshot: Located in the heart of the Fenway area, the Boston Conservatory was founded in 1867. There are two performance spaces, one on Hemenway Street and another, brand new performing arts center on Ipswich Street. BoCo is not a member of the Colleges of the Fenway, but students do occasionally cross register at Berklee. All students must audition. GPA range is 2.7-3.0 and SAT/ACTs are required. Admission to the conservatory is competitive.
BoCo alumni have recently been represented in the Broadway and national touring productions of Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, On the Town, Sideshow, The Book of Mormon, Rocky, and Once.

Student Life: Dorms are in townhouses along the Fenway; most students move off campus after sophomore year. The BoCo students share a cafeteria with the Berklee College of Music, which is two blocks away from the BoCo "campus." The main campus of BoCo is the Fenway and the alley between the dorms and classroom/performance space on Hemenway Street, as well as the city of Boston.
