Proctor Academy


  • Location: Andover, NH
  • Description:

    Since 1994, Proctor has offered more than 500 students the opportunity to board a traditional schooner and voyage along the eastern seaboard of the United States and into Caribbean waters. Students are not just passengers studying marine science, maritime literature, history and navigation during their term on Ocean Classroom, but are active crew members as well. From the first moment students step foot on the vessel, they are divided into “watches”, the core working group on any ocean-going vessel, answering directly to their professional watch officers. After nine weeks studying and working aboard schooner Harvey Gamage alongside our partner organization Sailing Ships Maine, students are transformed learners and experienced sailors. Ocean Classroom has the potential to be one of the most powerful experiences that a Proctor student can have.
