Off Campus

70% of Proctor students take part in term-long off-campus programs in Spain, France, Costa Rica, the American Southwest, and aboard a 131-foot schooner in the Atlantic Ocean. Explore these programs to better understand the power of experiential learning at Proctor.

Off-Campus Programs

Proctor is widely recognized for national leadership in experiential education, and our off-campus programs are core to that distinction. To our community, off-campus programs are not separate, but integral to the Proctor experience, providing hands-on learning opportunities that allow students to truly connect to the content they are studying. More than 70% of students take part in Proctor's term-long off-campus programs. 

Every school attempts to create a diverse learning environment on campus. However, no educational program on a home campus can compare to the global education provided by cultural immersion. Experiencing different needs and understanding the complexity of global inter-connectedness prepares Proctor students to participate in, and understand, a layered and shifting world.

Proctor's off-campus trimesters are fully funded for all boarding students including those students receiving financial assistance (day students pay an additional fee for each off-campus program).
