Mindfulness at Proctor
Adolescents have never had more demands on their time through omnipresent technology, pressures of college admissions, athletic and artistic pursuits, social demands, and, of course, academic classes. Without an intentional focus on teaching students to be mindful of the demands they are facing, the very reason many families decide boarding school is the best educational option for their student (to surround their child with support and learning opportunities) is compromised.
Proctor developed a Mindfulness and Meditation curriculum over 15 years ago to proactively teach students to manage stress in a healthy manner. We continue to offer academic courses in mindfulness and meditation to students throughout the academic day that are supplemented by an institutional commitment to elevating mindfulness within the community.
