Transportation for Weekends & Holidays

Air Travel

Given the convenient proximity of Westchester Airport in White Plains, NY, students are welcome to use this location and the School will assist with the coordination of transportation to and from the airport.  The School does not provide transportation to or from Kennedy or LaGuardia airports.  Students who wish to use Kennedy or LaGuardia airports, however, are advised to take direct transportation to and from these airports.  Usually, there are groups of students who wish to hire a private driver so the cost is kept reasonable.   

Contact Dean of Students, Mr Joshua Collins, jcollins@trinitypawling.org

Departure From School

At the beginning of each vacation, the School provides transportation to the locations listed below.  Unless there are exceptional circumstances approved in advance by the Headmaster or Assistant Headmaster, no student may leave the school prior to 11:00 A.M.  Therefore, please schedule flights or trains subsequent to the times listed below:

Return to School

In order to obtain space on transportation back to school, a student must make arrangements with Mr. Collins before he leaves on vacation.  Otherwise, he will have to make his own arrangements.  There are specific times that transportation will be provided.  Students who have not indicated the time of their return prior to their departure from school or who arrive after the scheduled pick-up at a given location, will be required to provide for their own transportation back to school.  Cabs are available from all locations.  If travel plans change, please notify Mr. Collins in the Dean of Students Office, promptly.  jcollins@trinitypawling.org
At the end of each vacation the school provides transportation only at the times indicated below:

Pawling Train Station to T-P – School picks up during afternoon and evening until 8:40 P.M.
Westchester Airport Pickup - Pickup starts at 3:30 last pickup is at 8:00 pm
Danbury Bus Terminal  - 4:45 P.M.
Poughkeepsie Train -  8:00 pm

Students who return to school by car MUST check in at the front desk by 9:00 P.M.  Failure to do so may result in the loss of weekend privileges.

Use of Cars

In cases when school transportation is not available or delays have rendered such transportation impossible, there are always cabs available from Westchester Airport, Poughkeepsie Railroad, and Danbury .  Accordingly, it is always a good idea for a student to travel with enough extra cash to cover such unforeseen expenditures.  Cab fare to Trinity-Pawling School  range from $40.00 to 80.00 depending on the distance.

We believe that we have made arrangements to provide transportation for your son at the best possible times for the majority.  We ask that you strive to make your travel plans in accordance with this schedule.

All scheduled school transportation to and from the School is chaperoned by members of the faculty.

Note:  Regular Transportation is not provided for the opening of school in September, nor at the close of school in June.  Special arrangements may be made in advance with Mr. Collins prior to booking airline reservations. Please contact Mr. Collins at  jcollins@trinitypawling.org

Not Just In the Classroom

What makes Trinity-Pawling unique? The Effort System is at the heart of everything we do.

The Pride

At Trinity-Pawling, every boy is a three-season athlete.  Whether he is learning the basics or has been excelling for years, he is part of the School's century-old athletic tradition.  T-P competes in the Founders' League, a highly competitive arena showcasing some of the nation's best prep school talent. T-P offers 13 interscholastic sports with 30 teams.

We're Seriously Creative

The Arts are an integral part of every Trinity-Pawling student's education. Whether they wish to develop existing talents or experiment with an entirely new form of expression, each student will have at least one year of music, theater, visual art or art history.

Welcome!

As a parent or guardian of a Trinity-Pawling student, you are a welcome member of the community. Your involvement through event attendance, participation in the Parents' Association, or simply staying connected is appreciated.

This could be you!

Over 100 years ago, Frederick Luther Gamage, Trinity-Pawling's Founding Headmaster, said, "Whether a boy succeeds or fails in the first instance at everything he tries is irrelevant.  The only boy who truly fails is the boy who fails to try."  Today, a century later, 315 boys live learn and grow together in an environment that fosters commitment, effort and character across the board.

Stay Connected!
