    The off-campus programs that Proctor has to offer make it particularly unique in relation to other boarding schools. I was lucky enough to participate in Ocean Classroom, which is an off-campus program where we sail. . .

    Proctor is unique in way too many ways to describe, but I will name a few. First, you get the opportunity to go abroad in high school! A four year student can have the opportunity. . .

    Called teachers by their first names. Had 5 unique abroad programs including Mountain Classroom, Ocean Classroom, Proctor en Segovia, Costa Rica and Euro. Also had learning skills. More of an experiential learning school. . .
