The Eliot School is a non-profit school and community resource that provides instruction and training in the fine and applied arts. We seek to advance appreciation of craftsmanship and to encourage the pleasure of creativity and artistic achievement.
LEGACY OF DIVERSITY & PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT
The Eliot School was founded in 1676 and endowed by John Eliot with the provision that it educate African and Native Americans as well as the children of settlers. Maintaining this legacy, we seek to engage people of all ages and all cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds from the neighborhood, the city, and beyond.
