Timothee Chalamet School and Education

Chalamet attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, the Manhattan school that inspired the movie and TV show Fame. Chalamet took his school’s performing arts focus into other classes, such as when he made a rap video — as “Lil’ Timmy Tim” — about statistics.

Ansel Elgort was one of Chalamet’s high school classmates; on one red carpet, Chalamet and Elgort each said the other was more popular in school. Their drama teacher told Vanity Fair, “They were both like rock stars in a way, in a school full of rock stars. Everybody recognized them as being particularly gifted.”

After graduating, Chalamet spent a year at Columbia University. However, while talking to McConaughey for Interview magazine, Chalamet admitted he “floundered” there because it was difficult to return to the strictures of school after getting to make movies. Chalamet also set up his own major at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.

Chalamet is now navigating a breakthrough career; as he told GQ magazine in 2017, “All this stuff’s very new — I’m trying to keep a journal and really remember this time of my life. It feels special.”
