Are there any good art schools in pa?

Hi guys. I plan on moving out to the east coast next summer. I'm taking a year off to build a really great portfolio, but anyways, he's my question:

My boyfriend lives near Carlisle, PA. He's not totally sure where he wants to go to school but somewhere somewhat close to there.

Does anyone know of some really good reputable art colleges in PA? Or neighboring states? Preferrably PA.. not interested in graphic design or that stuff, just painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, things like that.
