Parent Resources

Here at Trinity-Pawling, we understand that the college process can seem just as overwhelming to parents as it is to their sons. Below is a series of resources that may alleviate some of the trepidation from the process.

Naviance

Trinity-Pawling uses the Naviance Network so that counselors, students and parents can all access pertinent information during the college process.

Using Naviance’s Family Connection feature parents will be able to:

  • Track a student’s college application
  • Receive updates on student meetings with their counselor
  • See schedules of upcoming college visits
  • Research colleges
  • Populate lists of similar colleges
  • Find data such as GPAs, SAT and ACT scores about admitted students at various colleges

All students and parents are given a Naviance account during the spring of their junior year.

College Trips

We believe that seeing different college campuses and getting a feel for their individual atmosphere is a very important part of choosing the right school.  We also understand that the nature of boarding school means that parents are not always able to go on these visits with their sons.  

In order to help with this we offer two college tours, one at the beginning of March break and one at the end of the academic year.  Each tour will offer multiple routes each containing its own distinct set of campuses.  Students who sign up will meet with either Mr. Mead or Mr. Harff and pick the route that suits their college list best.

This year we are offering tours March 1-3, 2018 and June 3-5, 2018.

Please contact Mr. Mead for more details.


Junior Parents Day

Every year at the end of Christmas break, the College Office hosts Junior Parents Day, where we outline the college process for the families of our junior class.  We structure the event around presentations and panels featuring several admissions officers from colleges in our area. This gives families the opportunity to ask questions of and hear from college representatives that work directly with student applications. This day will also allow parents to meet our college placement team that will be working with their sons.

This year's Junior Parents Day will be held on
January 2, 2018.

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.
