Proctor Academy

204 Main St, PO Box 500, Andover, NH 03216

This school, originally the coeducational Andover Academy, was renamed in 1879 in honor of a local benefactor and has long been affiliated with the Unitarian Church, although it has remained nondenominational in practice. In 1971, girls were admitted as boarding students and a coeducational day program was established. Over the years, the academy's campus has grown to encompass 3000 acres and now includes the central village of Andover and extensive woodland in Ragged Mountain. Proctor's college preparatory program serves a cross section of college-bound students. Qualified pupils choose from a selection of honors and Advanced Placement courses, and the school also maintains a support system featuring structured extra-help and tutorial sessions. Laptop computers are issued to all students, and wireless Internet is available in classrooms and dormitories. The curriculum is enhanced by an extensive arts program and an Outward Bound-inspired mountain classroom elective in the desert Southwest. Pupils studying Spanish or French may participate in a ten-week program at a Proctor campus in Segovia, Spain; Aix-en-Provence, France; or Tangier, Morocco. A sailing adventure option, offered each fall term, allows students to earn full academic credit while sailing from New England to the Caribbean.
