First, you almost certainly mean that you are "confused" rather than "confusing."

Your proposed sentence is grammatical, but it is not quite idiomatic U.S. English.

I am proud of him for being a student in my school and being a resident of my area

would be better, but it still sounds quite wordy and stilted.

I am proud of him for being a student in my school and a resident of my area

is still wordy. Moreover, the meaning might be better expressed by using a clause rather than a gerund.

I am proud that he is a student in my school and a resident of my area.

Finally, even that version sounds stilted to me.

I am proud that he is a student in my school and my neighbor.
