  • 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.
