At Proctor, we take that knowing and understanding of teenagers to a whole new level of explaining the myriad of “why” teenagers get the rap they get. If you were looking for that view on teens, especially Proctor teens, then let me explain to you three reasons why I think they are amazing creatures.
Proctor Academy’s residential program cultivates personal growth, independence, and a strong sense of self, in a safe, healthy, supportive, intentional residential living environment. Community engagement and multi-faceted relationships with adults and peers in a small group setting allow students to grow and develop into responsible, compassionate, respectful and honest citizens of the world. Often, the strongest bonds formed between students and faculty at Proctor evolve out of residential life relationships, especially for those boarding students for whom dorm parents become an extended family.

Family Style Dormitories
Proctor has intentionally built a residential community filled with small, family-style dormitories that place the student:adult relationship at the center of the boarding experience. Dorm parents get to know students in their dorm, and students become a part of their dorm ranging in size from 4 to 18 students. With an average dorm size of twelve students and no dorm housing more than eighteen students, Proctor’s 20 dormitories are extensions of the dorm parents' homes. Dorm parents are on duty every evening maintaining quiet study conditions and offering academic assistance as needed. Check out photos and descriptions of Proctor’s dormitories on our campus map here.
