Grade 7 Science

This course is an introduction to human biology and health. The class was developed to give young students a "jump start" before entering the upper school full year biology course. The class focuses on the understanding of all eleven systems and the role that each plays in the maintenance of a homeostatic environment. Students "learn by doing" in this class and each boy is given a great deal of flexibility to express creatively through the development of projects, such as prosthetic hands, a 3D model of the digestive system, PowerPoint presentations on the path of a red blood cell, etc. Students also write creative stories to discuss immune system function and design ad campaigns to wage war against tobacco use. The spring term concludes with a science fair project that is developed entirely within the classroom.

Grade 8 Earth Science

This course is designed as an honors course to give students a basic understanding of the Earth's processes, as well as the laboratory skills to understand the foundations of Physical Science. Lectures, discussions, research, and laboratory activities focusing on the five disciplines of Earth Science (Geology, Oceanography, Astronomy, Meteorology, Earth History) and the foundations of Physical Science, allow students to think critically and make intelligent decisions about scientific and environmental problems in the future.

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.
