About the School

Located on a 25-acre campus in Milford, Connecticut, Lauralton Hall is the first Catholic independent college preparatory school for girls in Connecticut. A Lauralton Hall education empowers a young woman to excel in any endeavor, to find her own voice, and to be a bearer of Mercy to those in need.
Lauralton Hall offers students not only a holistic academic experience that develops the skills necessary for success in college and career, but also a supportive and caring environment that nurtures a young woman’s understanding of herself and others. The dedicated faculty and staff are wise role models who help each of the girls become the person that God created her to be—spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
Lauralton Hall’s diverse student body is comprised of young women from more than 35 towns. Students are immersed in the School’s warm and welcoming community where tradition and innovation intersect. Lauralton Hall provides need-based financial aid to 27% of students. Today’s student body represents diverse backgrounds – racial, socio-economic, geographic, cultural, and faith.
Lauralton Hall is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Connecticut Department of Education. It is a member of the Connecticut Association of Schools, Connecticut Association of Independent Schools, Mercy Secondary Education Association, and National Association of Independent Schools.
