English Mastery Program

Bridging the Languages

The English Mastery Program is a two-year program designed to help international students fully engage with the English language so they can excel in academics at Trinity-Pawling and in college. We focus on mastering reading comprehension and listening skills before advancing to coursework that enhances written work and analytical abilities. Trinity-Pawling is also a certified Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) testing site, and English Mastery students’ progress is consistently reflected in their TOEFL Scores.
