MILFORD >> Lauralton Hall is offering students in grades 5-7 a chance to be in high school for an afternoon.

Discover Lauralton, set for 1-3:30 p.m. Sunday, April 30, is an introduction for prospective students to the all-girls, college-preparatory school at 200 High St.

“Discover Lauralton provides the ideal opportunity for girls and their families to see why Lauralton is unlike any other private high school in the area,” said Toni Iadarola, president and head of school.

At the event, girls may select from six activities, ranging from science games to art projects, while parents attend information sessions. Families can talk with faculty, staff, current parents and students and to tour classroom and athletic facilities on the 30-acre campus.

Registration deadline is April 20; go to

Lauralton Hall has educated young women for more than 100 years. While the Catholic school is rooted in the Sisters of Mercy tradition, academics include a focus on STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.

According to a study by the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, young women thrive and succeed in an all-girl environment, the school said in a press release. For example, nearly 80 percent of girls’ school students report most of their classes challenge them to achieve their full academic potential, compared to 44.3 percent of girls at coed public schools, the press release said. In addition, nearly 75 percent of girls attending girls’ schools say that the experience taught them that women can accomplish anything, it said.

“A Lauralton Hall education equips students with the knowledge, leadership skills and global awareness to live life in the 21st century,” said Iadarola. “We believe that all young women can grow and blossom into their best selves here.”
