The goal of a Trinity-Pawling education is to unlock the potential for greatness that exists in each boy. The School pursues this goal through a vigorous learning environment that emphasizes essential 21st century skills such as innovation, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. A commitment to experiential learning bolsters the way boys learn best: by doing. Educators and students are dedicated to building a culture of honor on campus, which enhances the camaraderie and “brotherhood”, and creates a supportive network of friends and mentors — connections that last a lifetime. The Trinity-Pawling learning experience combines a timeless commitment to character with a dedication to prepare young men for an ever-changing world.
Trinity-Pawling is located on 230 acres overlooking the Hudson River Valley, just 60 miles from New York City. The Campus includes turf and grass athletic fields, an all-weather track, tennis courts, squash courts, hockey rink, and a new 20,000 square foot field house equipped with video and analytics technology, a contemporary art center with 400-seat theater, and a state-of-the-art science and technology wing of the academic building.
With 90% of faculty living on campus, students learn and grow in a close-knit community. Students are guided by teachers who are also their coaches and dorm parents, establishing strong faculty-student collaboration and providing for 24/7 learning. Trinity-Pawling serves 300 boys in grades 7-12 and offers a postgraduate program. Our boarding program begins in grade 8. The School offers over 100 academic courses and 20 AP courses, competition in 13 New England Founders League sports, and a diverse menu of activities, clubs, and trips. Students have many opportunities to discover their gifts and talents, and explore new interests.
Trinity-Pawling’s Center for Learning Achievement houses a number of support services to assist students in reaching their academic potential. Individualized instructional programs are available for students who have language-based learning differences, and for students with executive function difficulties. For over 45 years, our signature program and individualized academic support have been providing an environment where students are transformed — achieving their academic goals in ways they never expected.
One of the School’s most distinctive programs is the Effort System, which began nearly 50 years ago. Each boy at Trinity-Pawling is assessed for the effort he devotes to a given endeavor: academics, athletics, residential responsibilities, civic engagement, attendance, and extracurricular programs. The learning objective inherent in this ethos of effort is to teach boys that the more they invest of themselves the greater their accomplishments will be.
