President & Head of School Search Committee

The Lauralton Hall Board of Trustees has announced the retirement of Dr. Antoinette (Toni) Iadarola, President and Head of the college-prep, all girls’ school in Milford. She was appointed in 2009. Iadarola, who has been described as a pint-sized powerhouse by all who know her, will serve in the position until the end of the academic year, June 2017. Dr. Iadarola’s skillful leadership is rooted in a genuine commitment to the education of young women and the Catholic faith at the oldest independent Catholic school for young women in Connecticut.

“When Toni first arrived at Lauralton, she had just returned to Connecticut to retire, but quickly realized that she couldn’t sit still, so in essence, she flunked retirement!” stated Dr. Trudy Dickneider, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “Once hired, she immediately began working with the school community to develop strategic and master plans to further its goal of empowering young women for life and was uniquely qualified to move it to the next stage in becoming a premiere Catholic prep school for girls in the nation.”

The Board of Trustees will work with Dr. Iadarola to ensure a smooth transition to a new President and Head of School. A search committee has been created which will to find a suitable and capable successor to build on the achievements realized during Toni’s tenure and continue Lauralton's mission.
