Montserrat College of Art distinguishes itself as a small, independent art college offering a creative, nurturing community. We are Where Creativity Works! Small by design, our 400 creative-minded students work and live in a vibrant downtown environment 3 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean and five train stops to Boston.
The admissions staff at Montserrat is committed to helping you exceed your potential when preparing a portfolio, seeing you through the admissions process and helping you determine if Montserrat is the right choice for your educational goals.
Determining which college is the right fit for you is a tricky process. My advice is: trust your gut. In order to get a real sense of who we are, you have to experience Montserrat first hand. I invite you to visit campus to learn more about us, the admissions process, and portfolio development through one of our Saturday open houses or a weekday visit. We are here to help you!
It wasn’t too long ago that I was going through the same process you are – applying to art colleges. I remember quite vividly packing my artwork in a thrifty homemade portfolio case, and driving to a National Portfolio Day with classmates. The feedback I received on my work from the various admissions counselors was an incredible learning experience, and helped me prepare my final portfolio for admission. Now it’s your turn, and I look forward to getting to know you throughout the admissions process. After all, at Montserrat, we are all on a first-name basis!
