School Notes

  • With 90% of faculty living on campus, students learn and grow in a close-knit community of faculty, staff, and students. 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. The School offers over 100 academic courses and 18 AP courses, interscholastic competition in 13 sports within the highly competitive New England Founders League, and a diverse menu of activities, clubs, and trips allowing students to pursue and explore many interests. 
  • Trinity-Pawling`s Center for Learning Achievement houses a number of support services available to assist students in recognizing and reaching their academic potential while at Trinity-Pawling. Specific instructional programs are available for students who have language-based learning differences, and for students with executive function difficulties. Inspired by inquiry, our Learning Labs are the unofficial help desks of Trinity-Pawling. 
  • Trinity-Pawling is located on 150 acres overlooking the Hudson River Valley, just 90 minutes north of New York City. The Campus includes a turf field for football, soccer and lacrosse, as well as three natural grass lacrosse/soccer fields, two baseball fields, an all-weather track, nine new tennis courts, five squash courts, hockey rink, a contemporary art center with 400 seat theater, and a state-of-the-art science and technology wing of the academic building.
  • One of the School`s most distinctive attributes is its signatory Effort System, which began 45 years ago. Each boy at Trinity-Pawling is recognized and assessed in terms of the effort he devotes to a given endeavor: academics, athletics, dormitory responsibilities, civic engagement, attendance, and extracurricular programs. The learning objective inherent in this ethos of effort is to teach young people that the more they invest of themselves the greater their accomplishments will be. The Effort System, then, becomes a pervasive characteristic of a boy`s experience at Trinity-Pawling.
