Proctor Academy is a coeducational, independent preparatory boarding school for grades 9-12 located on 3000 acres (12 km²) in Andover, New Hampshire.

History

Campus

Proctor Academy is located on 3000 acres in the town of Andover, NH. The property is a NH certified tree farm. Trees logged on the property are sold to generate revenue for the school, however some logs are used in the school's wood shop, and to heat the wood fired dorms in the winter. The school also operates its own sugar house and sells maple syrup which is made from sap gathered on the campus.

The campus is split in two parts by NH Route 11, with academic buildings and dorms on one side and the Carr athletic fields and the Blackwater Ski Area on the other side of the road.

One of the newest additions to the campus, Peabody House, was completed in 2008 [citeweb|title=Peabody House Dedication|url=http://proctoracademy.org/chucks_corner/default.asp?L4=2&newsid=448819&L1=2&L2=&newsgroupid=2836] on the former site of Morton House, which was torn down in August, 2007. The building was designed to follow LEED criteria and used recycled materials where possible.
