Lauralton Hall will hold its annual Open House on Sunday, October 1 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at 200 High Street, Milford.  In addition, Lauralton Hall will hold its Entrance Exam for 8th grade girls on Saturday, October 14 and Saturday, October 21 at 8:00 a.m., also at the Milford campus.

Open House is an opportunity for girls and their families to tour Lauralton’s campus  (including the new Innovation Lab, collaborative-style classrooms, athletic facilities, Center for Guidance and College Planning, historic Mansion and 100-year-old Chapel), meet President and Head of School Elizabeth Miller, talk with faculty about course offerings at the academic fair in the Athletic Center, ask current students about life at Lauralton, and more.

There is no need to register for Open House.  The event is designed for students in 7th and 8th grades (5th and 6th graders and their families also are welcome.)  Lauralton Hall invites transfer students as well.

Lauralton Hall was founded in 1905 by the Sisters of Mercy and is Connecticut’s first Catholic college prep school for girls.  Open House attendees will get an inside look at the ways Mercy values resonate today in Lauralton’s mission:  Inspired by the Mercy tradition, Lauralton Hall empowers young women to pursue their highest potential through lifelong learning, compassionate service, and responsible leadership in a global society.

“We ensure that each young woman thrives as she is immersed in a school where tradition and innovation intersect,” said Elizabeth Miller, President and Head of School, Lauralton Hall.  “I invite girls and their families to come see the ways our academic, spiritual, social, artistic, athletic, service-minded experience is like no other high school in this area.”

Registration is required for the Entrance Exam.  The fee for the Exam is $60.
