Campus information

Lyme Academy College offers a number of academic, career and student services in order to help support a vital career as an artist.

The studio is the center of your day at Lyme Academy College, but after classes end the campus takes on another life.  With studios open until midnight or beyond, many students work late into the night, creating, collaborating and having fun.

Weekends aren’t just for homework; they’re for hiking in the local hills, walking along our pleasant beaches or just relaxing in one of our quaint coffee shops. For those in need of a little more excitement, Connecticut’s capital city of Hartford and the vibrant college town of New Haven, where Yale University is located, are both less than 45 minutes away. Similarly, New York and Boston are both just two hours by train or car.

Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts is located in Old Lyme, Connecticut – one of several towns that make up the primary region of the Connecticut River Valley in the heart of New England.

Old Lyme’s central location and proximity to major highways and public transportation makes for easy day-trips to New York City, Boston and Hartford – home to some of the best museums in the world.

Just 45 minutes west of Old Lyme is New Haven – home to Yale University and many galleries, art venues, restaurants and shopping. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Connecticut’s shoreline, the campus offers the space and atmosphere that allows students to devote themselves to their creative and academic studies.
