Academy of Our Lady of Mercy - Lauralton Hall Reviews

Graduated in 2016. Not the best guidance department...mostly clueless and did not emphasize the important of standardized testing. Told all the girls to apply to the same, basic, Northeastern Catholic schools which effected the lower percentile of the students applying. Teachers were not amazing/very up to speed. Lots of busy work and APs were a disaster because some teachers felt they were "too good" to teach to the test. Math and sciences need a lot of work...physics was the only subject I felt fully prepared for in college as a Mechanical Engineer. Dumb rules and emphasized many of the wrong things. Female empowerment was a dumb tagline when all the teachers were basically moms turned teacher. Not worth the money for the academics, but a solid sense of friendship and camaraderie among the girls.
Review Academy of Our Lady of Mercy - Lauralton Hall
Lauralton is a place where girls can be themselves and earn an amazing education. The staff is focused and driven on preparing their students for success. They prepare you to conquer the world, they allow you to explore your academic and extracurricular interests, and give you the tools you need to shine. I absolutely loved it and it prepared me for everything after I graduated!
My memories of Lauralton Hall are filled with happy but also frustrating moments. While I feel their curriculum is superb, the school and faculty struggled to let students express different or creative ideas and opinions. Most paper and project assignments were based on a thesis or idea the teacher proposed to their students. When I begin my collegiate career I found it surprising that most of my assignments welcomed creative and taboo ideas. Additionally, the school has a clique problem. The majority of the students are white and live in upper-class families. This created a lot of issues and tension amongst minority students. In sum, I enjoyed my overall experience at Lauralton-- having been a swim captain and winning a state championship, while also making friends that shaped who I am today.
