Educational Model

At the heart of our educational model lie supportive relationships between faculty and students. Most schools are either supportive or rigorous; Proctor is both. It is either the most rigorous of the supportive schools or most supportive of the rigorous schools.

By redefining academic rigor as the process through which students push themselves beyond their comfort zones, students and faculty learn just how important trust is to learning. Honors and advanced placement courses complement non-traditional classes and challenging off-campus programs, allowing students and teachers to form relationships around shared interests. Formal on-campus academic support takes place in Proctor’s Learning Skills program, but it is the informal support provided by teachers who offer extra help sessions at breakfast, in their dormitories or in their classrooms in the evening that further emphasizes self-advocacy skills, and encourages academic risk taking. Because we are challenging, we are also supportive.

The best education is one that instills a desire to constantly interact with the world, one that fosters both a hunger for knowledge about the world and an intuition about its workings. It is one that encourages critical thinking, creativity, and the ability to problem solve. It creates solution-oriented thinkers. Proctor gave me all that. It was, for me, the place where the boundary between classroom and experience dissolved.
Located in  Andover, NH,  Proctor Academy is a private coeducational day and boarding school for grades 912. Students benefit from a rigorous academic program, experiential off-campus programs, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
