Our Two-Campus Advantage

Laurel’s suburban-rural advantage gives girls the edge. At our traditional Lyman Campus in Shaker Heights, students thrive as members of a community that spans Pre-Primary through Grade 12 all under one roof. Just seven miles away from Shaker in Geauga County, Laurel students immerse themselves in the natural world at our beautiful 150-acre Butler Campus.
While we benefit from being a two-campus school that provides flexible indoor and outdoor learning spaces, we are one school when it comes to our philosophical approach to our students.

Lyman Campus

Nestled in suburban Shaker Heights, the Lyman Campus was built in 1928 and covers 11 acres. Our entire Pre-Primary through Grade Twelve community shares one complex, and our faculty and students delight in cross-divisional activities. Our younger students find role models not only in the adults who guide and encourage them, but also in the older girls who assist their teachers, serve as their Reading Buddies and engage with them in after-school programming. The Lyman Campus features two libraries, two gymnasiums (with bouldering and climbing walls), a dance studio, dedicated science labs in all divisions, renovated art spaces, an extensive outdoor play area—complete with gardens to encourage physical activity, creative play and environmental stewardship—and a restored Chapel Theater.

Butler Campus

Located in Russell Township and purchased in 1999, the Butler Campus features 150 acres of woodland and waterways, world-class athletic facilities, including the 16,000-square-foot Alice Lehmann Butler '49 Center for Fitness and Wellness, a Magic Tree House and a Yurt for Pre-Primary Outdoor Education. Primary students spend their LAB (Learning at Butler) days engaged with hands-on interdisciplinary activities, while Middle School students take advantage of the campus lodges and Conway Pavilion during immersion experiences such as Green Gator City (Fifth Grade), Tinkering Week (Sixth Grade), a two-week Archaeological Dig (Seventh Grade) and Nation Creation (Eighth Grade). Girls in all divisions tackle Butler’s Project Adventure Course, a series of 15 high- and low-rope elements.
