Laurel School will deliver a powerful education built on the application of skills, the interdependence of concepts and the importance of self-advocacy.
As always, Laurel girls learn to lead and to claim their voices.
Laurel's founders wanted to give girls a competitive advantage in every aspect of their education. Foundational elements included:
leadership • problem solving • critical thinking • articulate speech • eloquent writing • civic engagement
Now, to continue to equip Laurel girls with unparallelled opportunities, our contemporary approach also emphasizes:
Our curricular tradition is research-based.
resilience • creativity • entrepreneurship • collaboration • flexibility • cultural competence
Ten years ago, we began to develop original research and now Laurel’s Center for Research on Girls (LCRG)
is a nationally-recognized resource for independent schools. LCRG conducts, disseminates and puts into practice research that connects exceptional academic outcomes with social and emotional well-being. The value of LCRG is central to each Laurel girl’s experience.As our research shows, girls thrive when they are engaged in purposeful learning, inspired by great teaching and surrounded by a community invested in their success.
Social and emotional well-being, purpose and personalized learning fuel our program and lead to great outcomes on standardized measures of achievement. Our curriculum balances technology-rich liberal arts rigor with large-scale opportunities to dive deeply into compelling initiatives. Two inspiring campuses—Lyman and Butler—will be reimagined to honor our illustrious past and drive our innovative future.
