Proctor’s Off-Campus Programs
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 worldviews and lives are transformed. Each year, roughly a third of Proctor's student body studies abroad on one of Proctor’s five, term-long off-campus programs, with more than 75% of all Proctor students choosing to study abroad during their Proctor years.
At Proctor, faculty believe deeply in the value of learning as a process, not a specific outcome. Proctor’s model of academic rigor mixed with academic support results directly in a school culture that frames challenges in a way that encourages perseverance and provides opportunity for healthy struggle. There is no better place to authentically encounter this type of learning than through a study abroad experience where independence, self-advocacy, and self-awareness become primary tools for each student. Fully funded by boarding tuition and operated entirely by Proctor faculty members, our five term-long off-campus programs have shaped nearly every student's Proctor experience over the past five decades.
