President's Welcome

It is with enormous pride that I welcome you to the Lauralton Hall website! Founded in 1905 by the Sisters of Mercy, Lauralton Hall is the first Catholic college-preparatory high school for girls in Connecticut and among the first established in the United States. An independent institution, the school is overseen by a Board of Trustees.

At Lauralton Hall we have a culture of achievement where a girl’s accomplishments are what matters, where what she believes in and how she puts her beliefs into action are more important than how she looks, what she wears or whom she dates.  Through a challenging and supportive environment encompassing academics, arts, athletics, community service and many other co-curricular and fun-filled activities, our dedicated and skilled faculty and staff give each girl opportunities to discover her own strengths and talents and to become an independent, creative thinker. Balancing personal freedom and responsibility, our girls are encouraged to discover their passion, that which will sustain and empower them for life.  Yes, we set the bar high. And our girls exceed our expectations!

Ultimately, a Lauralton Hall education empowers women to live life in the 21st century. Here each student will learn to take risks and forge friendships that will last forever. She will be equipped with leadership skills and have an awareness of our global community. She will develop an intellect fit for 21st century learning and a concern, not only for her own well-being, but for the well-being of others. In essence, she will graduate a competent, confident and compassionate young woman empowered for life!

Do browse our website. More importantly, come and visit! Experience this unique community for yourself!
