Taking inspiration from our motto, Proctor Academy creates a diverse learning and living community: one that values the individual and recognizes the potential of each member to stretch beyond what had been thought possible.

Balancing academic rigor, structure, and support with the freedom for students to explore, create and define themselves, Proctor encourages students to achieve their optimal growth. A deep commitment to an integrated academic support program and an emphasis on experiential learning is interwoven throughout Proctor’s academic, athletic, artistic, and environmentally conscious programs both on and off campus.

Relationships that form theFoundation for Learning

We believe students are most successful when they feel seen, known, and deeply connected to their school community. The strength of Proctor’s community comes from the depth of relationships formed between students and faculty. Teachers are advisors, coaches, and dorm parents, living alongside students and working with them throughout all areas of their life.

As we begin to enter the hot button, single-issue voter period of the political season that is unfolding, perhaps that question and others will lead us back to what Proctor is truly world class at, which is process.

The Off-CampusExperience

Proximate learning does not occur without risk, but it is in those moments where students are living their education alongside the issues they are studying that lives are transformed.

The Off-Campus Experience

Living at aBoarding School

Proctor has intentionally built a residential community filled with small, family-style dormitories that place the student and adult relationship at the center of the boarding experience.

Residential Life at Proctor

Afternoon Program and Athletics

Every student engages in Proctor’s athletic and activity program each afternoon because we believe it is through shared, team experiences that we have the opportunity to put our core values into action.

Stewarding aSense of Place

We don’t just teach environmental stewardship at Proctor, we live it. Situated on 2,500 acres of woodlands, our campus and the trails, lakes, ponds, and adventures that lie within, connect us to the natural world that sustains us.

Environmental Stewardship in Action

Proctor Academy Mountain Classroom

From snow to rain and cold, the Mountain Classroom group has been up to a flurry of eventful activities. Starting in the farmlands of Huntington, Vermont, the group stayed in a very pretty heated barn allowing us to settle into the frontcountry, and start our work with Penny Huett, our black ash basket instructor.

Proctor Academy Cabin Environmental Stewardship

Every year at Proctor is wholly new, yet remarkably familiar. The faces of students change over time, both as they mature and as the natural turnover of the student body every four years introduces new, eager minds ready to embark on their Proctor experience.

Proctor Academy Wilderness Orientation

Each year, our work is to keep Proctor’s culture, and mission, clearly in focus. We do the hard things because we believe in their impact on our community and their contribution to our culture. We prepare our bags, lace up our boots, pack our sleeping bags, and embark on the best, hardest five days of the year. 

Proctor Academy Campus Woodlands

Rarely in life do we allow ourselves to exist in a moment of silence. When we step into nature, we amplify our ability to listen, to truly hear that which is resonating in our own minds and hearts. When we make space for reflection, we find direction.
