Signature Programs

What makes Academy of Our Lady of Mercy, Lauralton Hall, so exceptional?

Lauralton has many signature programs, those that are unique to our School. Whether it's Lauralton Hall's engineering team "The Wright Sisters" and its continued successful participation in the Sikorsky STEM Challenge, or Lauralton girls using State of Connecticut archaeological protocols to unearth, document, and preserve the past by excavating the site of a former Victorian greenhouse on campus, or the new Financial Intelligence Curriculum required of all sophomores, these programs make us distinctive.
