As the team begins the new season, they eye the difficult schedule that has them on the road for much of December and January, and they look forward to the upcoming challenges from Lakes Region opponents. 

Proctor Alumni: Charles (CC) Callaway '85

The average population density of the United States is roughly 87 people per square mile, but in New York City that number jumps to an astonishing 27,012 people per square mile. A rapidly changing climate will impact the 82% of US population living in cities more acutely than those living in suburban and rural areas as the urban heat island effect raises average annual temperatures by as much as 5°F in cities. For Charles Callaway ‘85, a native New Yorker, he saw an opportunity to work at WE ACT for Environmental Justice as a way to address multiple needs in his neighborhood: climate education, environmental health, and the production of good jobs to meet changing demand in the workforce.

Ten weeks ago, preseason athletes were arriving for Sports Camp. Temperatures flirted with 80 degrees and the hopes and dreams of a season lay in the hearts and minds of Proctor’s athletic teams.

Bowl Bound: Proctor Football 2019 NEPSAC Title Game

Nov 11, 2019 2:41:28 PM
A year ago, Proctor wrestled with the future of football at our school (read more   HERE). Coming off a 4-4 season with all but five players graduating from the team, the viability of the program seemed bleak. Fast forward eleven months and the 2019 varsity football team received word that Proctor had earned an appearance in a New England Bowl game (it’s fifth - '06, '08, '12, '17, '19 - in the storied history of the program). On Saturday, November 16, 2019, the Hornets will host a New England title game for the first time in school history when it welcomes Pingree School (7-1) to campus for a 1:00 PM kickoff. 

Daring Greatly: Holderness Weekend 2019:

Nov 10, 2019 7:53:35 AM

Usually the assembly before Holderness Day serves as a pep rally. Loud cheering and chanting, building school spirit as we prepare to make the drive north and conquer our foes. But Friday’s assembly was not that. It was far more powerful, far better preparation for what Holderness Day is really about: being vulnerable, supporting each other regardless of outcome, and daring greatly. 

The Impact of a Rivalry: Holderness Day 2019

Each season we split into our teams and afternoon activities. We work hard to cultivate a culture within that group. We often sit with our teams in the dining hall for meals, share laughs through our group chats, and spend more hours with this group of individuals than any other. For the past eleven weeks, we have operated in our own sphere, cognizant of that which orbits around us, but largely focused on our team. 

Academic Lens: Chasing Our Why

Oct 31, 2019 12:16:37 PM

The steady stream of prospective families through our Admissions Office over the past month resulted in a 20% increase in October tours over our five year average. While a far-too-early indicator of enrollment numbers for the 2020-2021 school year, it is a data point. There’s something intriguing about this random school plopped on 2,500 acres in the Blackwater River valley between Ragged Mountain and Mount Kearsarge. So what is it? Why are families interested in Proctor when all of the data shared by the Enrollment Management Association (EMA) and TABS on independent boarding school enrollment trend the opposite direction?
