Admissions FAQ

Q.
What does Laurel Hall look for in its students and families?

Laurel Hall looks for families who are committed to embodying the spiritual teachings of Christ and are also focused on offering their children a well-rounded educational experience. Understanding the importance of strong community involvement, we seek  parents who are community-minded, and students who are curious about the world and their surroundings. We recognize that each student thrives in differing environments, so we also evaluate whether Laurel Hall will be a "good fit" for them to grow and learn. 

Q.
What makes Laurel Hall different than the other private and/or charter schools in the area?

One of the major differences and benefits of attending Laurel Hall is the affordable value of our educational offerings in a small, nurturing environment. We offer a variety of extra-curricular programs and academic offerings similar to our private school neighbors, yet our class sizes and community involvement is unparalleled.

Q.
When should I begin the admissions process at Laurel Hall?

While we don't restrict the actual number of applications received or the time frame for submissions, applications submitted by the deadline will receive priority review.  Applications received after the deadline will also be reviewed but class space is limited.

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year are currently available, and are due by January 31, 2017.

Q.
What is your application deadline?

Our application deadline is January 31, 2017, and we strongly recommended that all prospective families submit their applications by the deadline so the required applicant evaluation, assessment and interview can be scheduled and completed on time.

Recommendation forms and transcripts are due by February 10, 2017.

Q.
How many students are in each grade?

The class counts vary slightly from year to year.

The elementary classes tend to have two classes each with an average of 19 students in each class. In TK-1st grade, there is also a full time teacher's aide in the classroom.

For Middle School (6th-8th grade), there are typically three classes for each grade, with an average of 20 students in each class.

Q.
Is there an after school program at Laurel Hall?

Yes. We have an after school play program, "EDP," that is offered Monday - Friday until 6 p.m. In addition, we also offer a wide variety of after school enrichment classes that alternate throughout the year. All enrichment classes are held on campus.

NOTE:  EDP and third-party enrichment classes have a separate tuition fee.

Q.
How much technology is integrated into my child's school day?

We believe that technology plays an important role in a child's education; however, we also believe there is a time and place for students to engage.

We have equipped every classroom with Smartboards that are used to support the classroom curriculum and activities. In addition, Kindergarten through 2nd grade have in-classroom iPads that are used in conjunction with class lessons. All grades attend a weekly computer class; the middle school has more days selected based on their coursework. We have a computer lab for all classes to use, a tech lab for research projects and class activities, as well as a project-based learning (STEAM) lab that grades 2nd - 8th attend weekly.

Q.
When do sports programs begin?

Our competitive sports programs begin in 4th grade for both boys and girls. Each child who wants to play is given the opportunity and is supported in their growth as an emerging athlete.
