The Building Blocks of a Better World: Friendships

Aug 10, 2022 11:45:14 AM

Despite volatile fuel prices, varied access to clean water, fresh fruits, vegetables, and grain, for most of us, our most scarce commodity is time. Competing responsibilities constantly claw away at it until we are left with precious few minutes of time for intentional allocation. With mid-August’s arrival, educators and students around the country experience an amplified sense of time scarcity as summer bucket lists feel just a bit more urgent.

To break things up a bit, this is a group blog, and being visual artists, we'll let the images, and drawing, for the most part, speak for themselves. The vast majority of photos are taken by Thomas.

The Proctor Experience: Are You Ready?

Congratulations to our Accepted Students! Late this afternoon, families received admissions decisions for the 2022-2023 school year, and we are incredibly excited about the group of students who make up this year’s accepted student pool.

Cherish the Gold: Fall Family Weekend 2021

Oct 9, 2021 9:34:13 PM

As parents of young children, we were often reminded not to blink, reassured that while the days were long, the years were short.

Later this week, Proctor’s campus will begin to bustle with students arriving for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. The majority of these students will be returning to Proctor, while 117 new students will be commencing a journey at Proctor with Wilderness Orientation. As we prepare for the arrival of our students, we share thoughts on what it means to be a Proctor parent because we all know the transition for parents is far harder than our students!

The anticipation of sharing a room with a roommate can be one of the more stressful parts of starting at a new boarding school. Will they snore? Will they be messy? Will they like a different kind of music? What if they like to stay up too late?

Here are what a few of senior dorm leaders have to say about the benefits of living with a roommate.
