Yes, there is a proper way to format your script. It's just that people don't quite seem to agree what that is. What follows, however, is a pretty good format that most manuscripts seem to follow these days. This was prepared for you with love and passion from Brian Thorstensen.

General Stage Directions
These are general rules to follow. You may want to use some small variations depending on your own writing. For example if the lines of dialogue are short sometimes having a character tag centered is not useful, the tag is too far away from the line. In that situation you may want to put character tags in two or three tab stops. The big key is consistency throughout your script. You are communicating, to a reader a director or an actor HOW to read your work. It is worthwhile spending time focusing on these details.
