Sam Prouty

Associate Director of Admissions



Sam joined the admissions staff in 2014, but he fell in love with Middlebury long before that, having spent summers studying at Middlebury’s Bread Loaf School of English from 2006-2009.  Sam began his career in admissions at Swarthmore College, his alma mater, where he earned a BA in English and economics.  Following his time in the Swarthmore office, Sam served for nine years as a college counselor, English teacher, dorm head, and coach at The Hotchkiss School in Connecticut.  Just prior to joining the Middlebury admissions team, Sam taught English at Buckingham Browne and Nichols School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Sam resides in nearby Weybridge with his wife Mel and their two small children, Meredith and Miles.  They all enjoy exploring Vermont’s natural beauty by bicycle, kayak, and trail.  Somewhere along the line, they intend to take skiing lessons at Middlebury’s Snow Bowl.
