Reading the Stars: The Constellation of Proctor

Mar 24, 2021 8:00:00 AM

Each student finds Proctor for a reason. For about 35% of our students, Proctor’s integrated academic support program, Learning Skills, serves as a key component of the independent school search. For others, it might be our term-long off-campus programs, athletics, the arts, or maybe the sense of togetherness that exists at a place like Proctor because of the faculty and staff who have dedicated their lives to nurturing and sustaining our community. 

Proctor Admissions: Advice to Our Parents

Mar 19, 2021 9:00:59 AM

Over the course of this week and next, our Admissions Team is welcoming small groups of accepted students and their families to campus, many for the first time ever, to tour our facilities, connect with our faculty, current parents, and some local day students. While the rest of campus is on Spring Break, this Covid-19 friendly version of our traditional Revisit Days has the same goals in mind: present an authentic view of the Proctor experience to help our newly accepted students see if Proctor feels like the right match.

Admissions Decisions: Write Your Next Chapter

The power of Proctor's community has sustained us during a most difficult year. It is a community that values each individual's journey, while embracing the power of together. It appreciates the diversity of our life experiences, yet is solidified by a shared vision for what education could and should be for this generation of adolescents. Today, we have the honor of inviting an incredibly talented, unique, and down-right fun group of Accepted Students to join us in our pursuit of community building.

Although Proctor's Admissions Team is  unable to host on-campus visits this fall, we would love to connect virtually with families interested in learning more about Proctor. We will offer "Explore Proctor" information sessions throughout October and November for families to learn about all that Proctor has to offer.

From Fear to Freedom: Who We Could Become

Apr 10, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Front and center in our conversations with prospective students is our belief in expanding our students’ identities during their Proctor journey. We encourage each prospective student to ask themselves “Who could you become?” They arrive with one perception of self and quickly realize their self-imposed, artificial confines of identity need not apply here. Institutionally, we are facing our own “Who could we become?” moment. What can we learn from this COVID-19 induced remote experience this spring? How can online or a hybrid learning model work at Proctor? What do we miss most about our community being together and how do we ensure that sustains in the future?

Mike's Notes: The Big Decision

Apr 9, 2020 3:22:05 PM

In this time of unbelievable uncertainty, the decisions, the big decisions can be hard to make. Do you make the move or not make the move? Education for a child is one of those big ones, particularly if you are considering investing in a new community. The tuition and room and board fees? Those are big numbers. How do you know if the school is going to be right, if it’s all going to click? If the faculty are going to understand your child, if the peer group is going to be right, if the whole thing is going to take? For those of us who may be a little ahead of you on the journey, perhaps there is some wisdom to share. 

Proctor's Virtual Revisit Experience: March 31 and April 7

Mar 22, 2020 10:13:53 PM
We talk often to our students about their need to be flexible, agile in their approach to their learning and unexpected hurdles that may enter their lives. The rapidly changing landscape related to COVID-19 has allowed us to practice what we preach as we prepare to host Proctor's first Virtual Revisit Day experience on March 31 and April 7.

The sap drips feverishly into buckets around campus thanks to an uncharacteristically warm 60 degree sun pounding down on campus, while global stock markets plummet and COVID-19 fears begin to have a real impact on each of our lives. The uncertainty in the air is palpable, and we thought it quite appropriate to share a little good news!
