At Lauralton, all of the young women here are bonded together in a sisterhood that supports each other every step of the way. I am not only academically challenged every day, but I am also surrounded by loving teachers and peers that help me grow as a person and a leader to my highest potential. Lauralton is a welcoming and merciful community like no other!
“The opportunities and challenges push you to be the best person you can be academically, actively, and mentally.”
Lauralton is a community of ambitious and unique individuals that are guided towards success with the help of their peers and teachers. Students are opened up to new opportunities and experiences that allow them to become the best versions of themselves and rise to their fullest potential.
Lauralton Hall believes in the power of the female mind; we believe that all young women can grow and blossom into their best selves.
Mercy is a path we walk each day. This path leads us to commit to a lifetime of serving and caring for each other.
The values that inspired the Sisters of Mercy more than 180 years ago remain a living, breathing part of our community today.
Through a challenging and supportive environment, each girl is given the opportunity to discover her own strengths and talents and to become an independent creative thinker.
Understanding and respecting other cultures, the global economy, and how to interact in different settings are essential skills our students learn.
A broad spirituality underlies Lauralton's holistic approach to education. We welcome and include all who wish to grow in spirituality, wisdom and character.
