    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. . .

    Proctor's use of experiential learning really sets it apart from other boarding schools. I took wildlife science and forestry, and we were out in the field many days. As well, I participated in Proctor's Ocean. . .

    The two factors that made my experience at Proctor Academy so unique were the incredibly high quality recording studio, and travel abroad programs. As a musician, the recording studio set Proctor apart from all. . .
