The Prout School is a private, coeducational, college-preparatory high school located in Wakefield, Rhode Island. It is a member of the NEASC and an International Baccalaureate school. It is the only International Baccalaureate high school in Rhode Island. It services all of New England, but more specifically Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
Located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, The Prout School was founded in 1966 by the Sisters of the Cross and Passion of Manchester, England and named after Mother Mary Joseph Prout, the order's founder. The school was originally an all female institution called Prout Memorial High School. The campus was built on a 212-acre (0.86 km2) property adjacent to nearby Wakefield (South Kingstown). In 1981, the school became a diocesan high school, and in 1986 it became a co-educational institution and was renamed the Prout School. In 1992, following the 25th anniversary of the school, Prout became the third United States school to become a member of the International Baccalaureate Organization.
Prout has a very large active arts program including theatre, music, visual arts, and dance. The theatre department puts on a play in the fall and a musical in the spring. The dance, music and visual arts departments have a joint program every December and June.
The school also fields teams for baseball, softball, track and other sports.
