Admissions FAQ

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

We are a highly regarded school that places significant value on providing students with a well-rounded educational experience. Our families are appreciative of our mission to provide a rich, rewarding experience that includes academic rigor, arts, and co-curricular offerings, amidst a faith-based spiritual education. Understanding the importance of strong community involvement, we also seek parents who are community-minded, and students who are curious about the world and their surroundings.

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.

Is there an after school program at Laurel Hall?

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.

How much technology is integrated into the curriculum?

Technology plays an important role in a child's education. Each classroom is equipped with a Smartboard that is used to support 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; middle school tends to utilize the technology more frequently based on coursework. Laurel Hall has multi-use computer lab, a tech lab for research projects and class activities, and project-based learning (STEAM) lab that grades 2nd- 8th attend weekly. Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are used extensively throughout  the 3rd-8th grades. Click here to learn more.
