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.

Summer Service Learning

Proctor’s Community Service program extends well beyond on-campus initiatives during the academic year by providing service learning trips abroad each summer. Since 2013, summer service trips have afforded dozens of students the opportunity to travel to Guatemala, Southeast Asia, China, and to the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota to learn about different cultures and to serve within those communities.

These dynamic trips afford students the opportunity to have a rich service immersion experience and to further develop relationships with faculty outside of a classroom setting. Students return to campus in the fall energized and driven to put what they learned during their immersion experience into action, both on campus and in the surrounding community. Proctor’s summer service trips are two-week adventures that provide an experiential foundation for understanding community investment at Proctor and the world beyond.

Rosebud Summer Service Trip
South Dakota
Established in 2016
 
Students travel to the Rosebud Reservation to learn from and give back to part of the Lakota Nation.  Students stay with a local Proctor family, experience traditional ceremonies, learn about the history of the Lakota people and the land, and give back to ongoing projects on the reservation with their strength and energy.  
 
Depending on the year, students have the chance to visit local historic destinations such as the Black Hills (Paha Sapa) and Wounded Knee.  Students also have the chance to meet a number of Proctor alumni who continue to live and invest in their communities in Rosebud and Pine Ridge. For more information contact Lori Patriacca at panac@proctoracademy.org or check out the Rosebud Service Trip Manual HERE.
