The strength and potential for the college to grow was rooted in the belief that women’s education and an empowering community were the perfect foundation for success. Over the next nine decades, the college grew to be so much more. It became a place that many called home, steeped in traditions and celebrations that are not forgotten.

In 2019, Laurel School’s incredible community successfully raised $107,431.20 dollars to bring Microsoft HoloLens technology to the classroom during the Gator Bash’s “Call to the Heart” paddle raise. At that time, Laurel had forged a unique relationship with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) to incorporate augmented reality into the classroom via Microsoft HoloLens. In fact, Laurel was the first school in Ohio to partner with CWRU in this way. The funds raised ensured Laurel could acquire the necessary hardware and software and more importantly, provide the opportunity to our students to learn programming and to be active collaborators with faculty in the development of new applications for use in K-12 classrooms.
