Founded in 1907, Trinity-Pawling School is an all-boys college preparatory school located in Pawling, New York.   Our school serves 300 boys in grades 7-12 and offers a postgraduate program.  Trinity-Pawling offers over 100 academic courses and 18 AP courses, interscholastic competition in thirteen sports within the highly competitive New England Founders League, and a myriad of extracurricular activities.
At Trinity-Pawling, we believe a man of great character exists in every boy, and if he finds that man within himself, the trajectory of his life will shape our world for the better.
The School unites us all—students, faculty, alumni, parents, and friends—in a community that believes in the power of character.
On campus, a commitment to honor forms the basis of T-P's entire educational approach.
It calls us to dig deep for the best scholar, athlete, and person inside each one of us, students and faculty alike.
As we prepare young men for the world beyond Trinity-Pawling, we seek to convey this fundamental lesson: Character is the single most influential force to propel us forward—whether academically, physically, socially, or spiritually.
