- At Trinity-Pawling, everything we do is shaped to the needs of boys in the 21st century. We teach and learn from experience. Our programs are active and applied - packed with opportunities for hands-on learning. We reimagine what`s possible in boys` education. The results are transformational. Trinity-Pawling offers a personal educational experience to 300 boys in grades 7-12 and postgraduates. The School delivers entrepreneurial and ambitious programs that provide opportunities for collaboration and camaraderie, independent exploration, and the discovery of passions and talents. With over 100 academic courses, 18 AP courses, 13 athletic teams competing in the New England Founders League, and a multitude of extracurricular activities, our students have many opportunities to reimagine and own their education.
- Experiential learning is just the beginning. Our three-part Practicum for Civic Leadership fosters problem-solving skills, promotes interdisciplinary exploration, and builds authentic communication skills. Through the Winter Project, Global Collaborative Challenge, and Senior Independent Project, we place our students at the center of the learning process. They become active participants and co-creators - in and out of the classroom. Using a multi-disciplined approach and engaging with the world outside of Trinity-Pawling, students work collaboratively to understand issues, give oral presentations both as part of a group and as an individual, and learn how to ask the right questions when confronted with challenges. The three-pronged, multi-dimensional Practicum challenges every student to master these 21st century skills.
- The School`s Center for Learning Achievement recognizes the potential in each and every student. For over 45 years, this signature program and individualized academic support has provided an environment where students are transformed - achieving their academic goals in ways they never expected, finding their confidence, and preparing for their futures.
