About Laurel Girls

Laurel girls are ambitious. They take risks and welcome intellectual and physical challenges.

They are individuals who hone their intellect, develop their confidence and discover their passions. Laurel girls embrace over a century of tradition and develop bonds of friendship that last a lifetime.
Laurel girls are courageous, creative, ethical and compassionate. They are young women who become leaders in their colleges, industries and communities.

An all girls’ school, K-12, with a coed Pre-Primary, Laurel School is proud to be an inclusive and equitable school community that welcomes students without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, handicap or disability or sexual orientation. Additionally, we actively seek faculty and staff without regard to these identifiers or gender.

Two Campuses

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.
    • Two Campuses. One Community.

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.
