Founded in 1907, Trinity-Pawling School is an all-boys college preparatory school located in Pawling, New York. The school serves 300 boys in grades 7-12 and offers a postgraduate program. 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 innovation, creativity, and critical thinking.
A growing commitment to project-based and experiential learning acknowledges the research that has identified learning paradigms that prove to be successful for boys.
A camaraderie of “brotherhood” is enhanced by the mutuality of a family of educators and students who are dedicated to building a culture of excellence and a commitment to honor. The Trinity-Pawling learning experience combines a timeless commitment to character with a dedication to prepare young men for an ever-changing world.
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. Trinity-Pawling offers over 100 academic courses and 18 AP courses, interscholastic competition in 13 sports within the highly competitive New England Founders League, and a myriad of extracurricular activities.
