The Prentiss Society

As a Prentiss Society Member, you demonstrate your belief in Laurel, its mission and the promise of every Laurel girl. Through your investment, Laurel girls find their voices and gain confidence. They are encouraged to take risks, are motivated to become critical and creative thinkers and are inspired to find their passion…their purpose.
In 1976, to honor founding headmistress Jennie Warren Prentiss and those who have kept her vision alive, Laurel School created the Prentiss Society. Annual membership in the Prentiss Society begins with a gift of $1,896 to celebrate Laurel's founding year.

The Laurel Fund supports the foundation of a Laurel education:

Visual & Performing Arts • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) • Athletics • Faculty & Staff Compensation • Laurel's Center for Research on Girls (LCRG) • Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) + so much MORE

Every Laurel student benefits from the Laurel Fund each year. A gift to the Laurel Fund is an investment in the next generation of female leaders. Donate below or explore our other ways to give, including the Ohio Tax Credit. Thank you for your support!

  • Independent Thinker

    "My Laurel experience undoubtedly shaped the person I am today. The school’s unmatched resources established a foundation of analytical, creative and critical thinking skills. The tight-knit community of students, teachers and families provided a support system that empowered me to take risks and develop as an independent thinker. Most importantly, Laurel’s expectation that each student speak up, ask questions, and challenge the status quo, instilled in me the confidence to tackle challenges and to pursue my aspirations."

  • Embracing Opportunity

    "Laurel is a unique learning experience where our girls are taught to think independently and be curious. They lean into the power of the word yet and embrace the opportunity to try new things and take risks. Laurel has guided them to be resilient, confident and inclusive global citizens. They care deeply about the environment and the community in which they live and serve. Laurel’s learning approach is building strong and inquisitive women leaders who will guide us into the future."

  • Foundation for the Future

    My parents encouraged my sister and me to have high ambitions and taught us that to answer the call when opportunity knocks, we need to be prepared. My Laurel education provided a foundation to do just that, and I want to ensure future generations of Laurel girls fulfill their promise and better the world. This is why I choose to support Laurel through membership in the Prentiss Society.
