Admissions Information

Admission to Lauralton Hall is based on a holistic picture of each young woman who applies. Your application will be carefully reviewed by our Admissions Committee. We will be test optional and will review scores if you share them. We want to know a lot more about you than test scores, so please list your extracurricular activities in your application. We look forward to reading your application, essay, and recommendation letters to help us get to know you better.    


The Entrance Examination

Testing is optional for admissions consideration.  However, it is required to be considered for merit scholarships and we strongly encourage all applicants to test for purposes of academic placement.  Lauralton Hall is currently accepting scores from the High School Placement Test (HSPT®)  provided by Scholastic Testing Service, as well as the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) provided by  Enrollment Management Association (EMA).  Transfer students do not have to take the exam.
