College Counseling

Finding the right College fit

As a top college preparatory school in the Northeast, Trinity-Pawling provides our students with the guidance and support they need to find success in college and beyond. Our dedicated college counseling team has an individualized and student-centered approach as they help each student navigate the college selection process — from researching and visiting to applying and interviewing.

Our Distinctive Approach

A unique aspect of every Trinity-Pawling application is the committee of Secondary School Report (SSR) writers. Each year, 12 faculty members (each of whom work closely with the senior class) volunteer to help the college counseling team write each senior’s SSR. This process creates a personalized and in-depth letter of recommendation that introduces the college admissions teams to each well-rounded student in our community. Every year, colleges applaud these letters as some of the most personal and genuine ones they read.
