Application Information & Instructions

Policy on Nondiscrimination

Lauralton Hall admits qualified students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Lauralton Hall does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ancestry or national and ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, admission policies and scholarship and loan programs.

Accommodations for Students with Learning Disabilities

Lauralton Hall offers a challenging academic experience designed to prepare young women for acceptance to and success in a wide range of colleges and universities. Qualified students with mild to moderate learning disabilities can certainly find success in the Lauralton Hall program. However, the rigor of the course of studies does not allow for more than limited accommodations; therefore, there are instances in which all recommendations of a student’s Individualized Education Plan cannot be offered.
