Trinity-Pawling welcomes new director of admission

Trinity-Pawling has a way of pulling people back. Just as Headmaster Bill Taylor has returned to campus after broadening his experience for the past 13 years, JP Burlington ’95 has come back to serve as Director of Admission. In his four years at T-P, Burlington immersed himself in all aspects of campus life: he sang as a Trinitone; played varsity soccer, squash and baseball; and served as a sacristan, dorm proctor and Head Prefect come senior year. As a freshman, he started giving campus tours for the admission office, an activity that literally set the course of his life. He continued to work in admissions when he was a student at Wheaton College and never stopped.

Burlington has gained extensive experience in admissions over the past twenty years. He did an internship at T-P in January 1997 and then returned as a full time admission associate from 2002 to 2004. He worked admissions at Westover School for five years and Brooks School for another three. Burlington has covered the boarding school admissions gamut: all-girls, co-ed, and all-boys!

Burlington will move into an apartment in Starr Hall this summer with his wife, Megan, and their two toddlers, Joseph and Meredith. “It’s great to be coming back home.”

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.


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.
