Campus Visits Update

Out of concern for the health of our communities, we are not able to accept any requests for in-person campus tours or appointments at this time. We would love to welcome you to PCA&D’s campus at a future date. We’ll continue to be in touch and will let you know as soon as we’re able to host in-person visitors again. For now, watch our virtual campus tour or meet with a counselor for a one-on-one virtual session.

PCA&D enjoys the benefits of Lancaster City’s bustling and vibrant art community that boasts over 125 arts venues including galleries, museums, theaters, orchestras, ensembles, poetry sites and public art installations. PCA&D is centrally located between the resources of the nation’s cultural capitals, Washington, D.C., and New York, and is easy to reach by car or rail.

Make sure to visit long enough to take advantage of our historic, art-filled Lancaster City, sample some of the city’s more than 90 restaurants and cafes, and enjoy our beautiful surrounding countryside.

Fabulous Fridays

Want to learn more about Lancaster City? Consider experiencing a First Friday (first Friday of every month) or Music Friday (third Friday of every month). Our city has put its creative talents to use and moved these city-walking events online to bring joy and music into people’s homes until downtown fully reopens.
