Serving as a 9th grade Proctor is a privilege at Rectory that a student earns through hard work, dedication, and a clear commitment to our community. Each spring, a series of interviews follow the application process for our interested eighth-grade students, with the final selections made by a panel of faculty members. Once chosen, Rectory Proctors act as a bridge between the students and dorm parents, fulfilling the role of mentors and big brothers/sisters to their dorm mates. Often, the responsibilities include helping students acclimate to boarding school life; they may listen to the concerns of a homesick student, help a dorm mate learn how to clean a room and make his/her bed properly, or teach a young boy how to wear a tie. The expectations of our Proctors are high, and this esteemed group does not disappoint. Leading by example and acting as a role model is of paramount importance and are just two of the ways Proctors can give back to the Rectory community, their home away from home.
