The Prout School Photo #5 - Our dedicated faculty and staff are always willing to support students with extra help before and after school. Many have extensive teaching experience and hold advanced degrees in their field.
The Prout School Photo #6 - We are a community of friends who support each other. We have a well-deserved reputation of welcoming new students and embracing differences in our school community.

The Prout School Photo #8 - Crusaders know how to have fun. Community-building traditions include Spirit Week, Homecoming, Battle of the Classes, and an always popular (and often messy) gingerbread house-building contest.
The Prout School Photo #9 - We are a Catholic community. Each day starts with prayer and we come together monthly to celebrate Mass. Service to others is integral to our Catholic identity and we offer meaningful ways for our students to share their talents with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
The Prout School Photo #10 - Students at Prout find success in the classroom, on the fields and through our extra-curricular activities. 100% of our well-rounded students graduate from Prout and 99% go on to find success at college and universities around the world.
