|At first glance, Proctor's curriculum appears designed for a school of
2,000 students, not 340. The breadth of academic offerings is so great
that students are able to choose highly specialized, personalized
experiences. Some choose to advance technologically. Others build
boats, or master the recording studio. A student in Advanced Placement
electives may dedicate her evenings to Drama Tech, while her roommate
manages snow-making at The Blackwater through Ski Patrol. Drawing on
its Unitarian heritage, Proctor encourages you to take responsibility
for your education, to choose your path, to focus on your own,
individual goals and dreams.|
Whether you come to Proctor with clearly defined goals and interests, or you hope to develop new ones here, this community will support you, and advance your success. New jazz musicians emerge; ski jumpers qualify for Junior Olympics; video gamers become rock-climbers; math-phobic ninth graders become A.P. calculus students. The beauty is that you may specialize-or not specialize-to the degree you choose!
At its most basic level, Proctor is a college preparatory school. Within that definition lives a vigorous academic program to stimulate critical thinking skills, a broad arts programs to express your creative side and an athletic program that will challenge both your teamwork and fitness levels. Beyond this definition lies your imagination. Who do I want to be? What do I want to do? How can I make a difference? This is when true learning happens at Proctor.
