My son who is a rising Senior in HS is seeking a very specific kind of school. He seeks an open curriculum and ability to explore visual arts, animation and creative writing. We live in DC and he doesn’t want to go too too far away. Additionally, he is not the most independent kid yet - summer birthday. It looks like University of the Arts would not work for him due to lack of meal plan and student CTR. LGBT Friendly is a must but I think that goes without saying with the list below. Does anyone have input on the schools below or any thoughts on other schools in PA, DE, MD, NOVA that fit the needs above?
Not too far from DC
Art School or Liberal Arts school that has a great art/animation and creative writing program
List so far:
Bennington (Not close tho home but extended family not far)
Tyler School of Art at Temple U
VCU School for the Arts
MICA (hard to get into I hear)
