FAQs

Will my son need a computer while he is at T-P?
T-P does not require its students to own a computer. However, over half of the students on campus currently own a computer and a printer and use them on a daily basis to work on assignments, and type papers. For students who do not bring a computer to campus,we do provide workstations in the Gardiner Library and in the Computer Labs in the Dann Building

What about a printer?
It is required that if a student has a computer, he should also have a printer with it. Students find it very beneficial to have a printer in their rooms.
T-P does provide printer and copier stations in the Library and the Dann Building. Student can print from their computers by emailing their documents to "tpmobile". By swiping their T-P Student ID Card at the printer/copier they can retrieve their documents.

What if my son's computer breaks?
T-P cannot guarantee repairs. Students will need to contact the manufacturer directly for service and support. T-P will make an attempt to resolve the problems. If a computer is under a warrantee, T-P will not work on that computer.

What software should my son bring with him?
Your son will definitely need a word processing software while at T-P. We recommend you purchase Microsoft Office Student & Teachers Addition. 

To improve network security from virus' and spyware, T-P is requiring All Students to have Microsoft antivirus software installed on their PC computers. You can download the software from Microsoft.com. If you are using Windows 8 as an operating system, please download Windows Defender.  If you are using Windows 7, please download Microsoft Security Essential.  They are both free downloads.  If you need help loading the antivirus software, the Technology Staff will assist you when you arrive on campus. Please bring your computer (power cords also) to Mr. Metcalf in the Dann Building room 130.  Please Note: No other antivirus software will be permitted. 
 
How can my son connect to the network if he brings a laptop to school?
If your son brings a laptop to campus, he will have access to the network in the Gardiner Library or in the Computer Lab and in the dormitories. Once registered he will have access to the network.

Is file sharing permitted?
No, the School's network must remain consistent and stable so that students and teachers can have access when needed. File sharing creates heavy network traffic and will cause the system to not function properly. Since most file sharing involves illegal music and movies, it is never permitted.

Should I purchase a laptop or a desktop computer?
Consider whether your son will bring his computer to class or to the library to study. Also, your son will have more room in his dorm with a laptop. T-P recommends that the student purchase a laptop.

How do I access T-P's network 
A User name and password will be assigned by the Technology office for network access, e-mail access and portal access. This information will be in the students mailbox providing we have a signed Acceptable Use Policy. Please note that if we do not have a signed Acceptable Use Policy, a student will not receive this information. It is important that this form be signed and returned to the school in early August.

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.
