Live to Learn. Learn to Live.


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.

Proctor Academy Community

We coach, and teach, and advise, and supervise dormitories, amplifying our intersections, and therefore impact, with the young people under our care. We must do this work, all of it, with humility if we are to do it well. Because when we do, we sow essential seeds of humanity in the lives of our students.

Proctor Academy Commencement 2024

Perfect weather, a well-orchestrated weekend of activities, and a commencement ceremony that was a splendid mix of happy, emotional, funny, and serious surrounded the Class of 2024 as we celebrated their class alongside family, friends, alumni, and guests.

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 Earth Day

We have never been more connected to each other (digitally), yet we have never been more disconnected from the world around us which is why celebrating Earth Day the Proctor way always comes as an exhausting, refreshing change of pace. 

Mountain Classroom Spring 2024

After around a month-long hiatus, the Mountain Classroom blog is back! As the first of four total blog posts, Molly and Niko cover just what has happened during the first two weeks of the program! 

Proctor Academy Project Period

All over the Proctor proper, students are taking a different kind of road less traveled as they gently springboard back into themselves and into the final stretch of the 2023-2024 school year. 

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.
