Montserrat College is a small, highly specialized school for students of visual art. It offers programs in art, design and writing. While I was there, I observed watercolors, paintings, sculpture, an exhibit “Wood,” and extensive Mac labs for graphic design programs. Because of its very small size, students receive a lot of individual attention and support. The campus is in a residential neighborhood in a lovely area of Beverly. It is easily walkable and bikeable and the commuter rail is also within walking distance to take students to Boston, to the North or to the nearby Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. Downtown Beverly is nearby with many restaurants and shops, as are exclusive town beaches. The main campus building is also directly across the street from the Beverly Public Library. Student art is featured all over the campus. The buildings on campus are historical and many are former large houses. Residence halls are large houses rented on behalf of students by the college. Applicants are strongly encouraged to share their portfolios on a preview day. Admissions and staff are available to work with high school seniors fully understand each student’s academic potential.
