Personal Campus Tours

If you cannot attend an open house or you would prefer a completely guided exploration, consider scheduling a personal tour and/or portfolio review with an admissions counselor.

Want to maximize your visit to not only PCA&D but Lancaster City? Consider scheduling your visit on a First Friday (first Friday of every month) or Music Friday (third Friday of every month). Experience the creative powerhouse that is PCA&D in the afternoon and stay to explore our vibrant artistic community in the evening.

Personal appointments are scheduled Monday – Friday between 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. Call us at (800) 689-0379, ext. 1001 or email us at
