Admissions Overview

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for your interest in The Prout School. A Catholic school in the Diocese of Providence, Prout is committed to empowering students to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially in an atmosphere of Christian giving. We offer rigorous college preparatory and honors programs, as well as AP and the advanced International Baccalaureate Program, a rigorous program in which students can earn credits at most colleges and universities. This is the only program of its kind in Rhode Island and one of only fourteen in New England.

We also offer a competitive athletic program--many of our teams have made playoffs in recent years and we boast several league, division and state champion teams. Our extracurricular activities go beyond athletics, with clubs such as SADD, Yearbook, Math League, Mock Trial, French Club and more.

Our award winning Visual & Performing Arts program offers opportunities for students to express their more creative side. Our program includes acting, musical theater, technical theater, pottery, drawing, painting, sculpture, band, chorus, dance and much more. There are three main stage productions each year, as well as art shows, dance shows and musical concerts.

In addition to our academic and extra-curricular programs, we also place a strong emphasis on service and community. We encourage students to reach out to those in need and to assume responsibility for making their world a better place, entering into a lifelong personal relationship with Jesus as a role model, friend and guide. The end result is well-rounded graduates who are rooted in faith, educated in mind and compassionate in heart.

As you review our admissions information, please note important dates and deadlines. We have tried to make the application process easier by making admissions forms and brochures available online. I also invite you to attend one of our Open Houses, schedule a private tour or attend a shadow day with one of our Student Ambassadors.

When I was in your place, I was considering many schools. I chose Prout because every single person in this building cares so much about you, it's uncanny. It's a feeling that can only be described as family.
