Throughout the months of February, March, and April, Proctor Academy’s Admissions Team processed applications, hosted three Accepted Student Days, and solidified enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year. While many small colleges and independent schools in the region have seen dips in enrollment, Proctor has seen the opposite trend as its acceptance rate dropped from 50% (over the last five years) to 43% this year. Additionally, despite increasing the number of Day Student spots to the largest number Proctor has ever had, demand for Proctor’s Admissions Team saw double the number of Day Student applications compared to the ten year average.

To date, the Admissions Team under the leadership of Christin Lathrop, has hit all target enrollment numbers for the coming year. With a target enrollment of 393 students for the 2024-2025 school year, Proctor’s administration and admissions office will continue to develop strategies to increase access to local families, while balancing the school’s residential mission and commitment to a smaller school-size over the next five years.
