Class of 2020 Celebration

Honoring the Graduates

Our honored traditions of Stepping Up, Baccalaureate Service, and Commencement Exercises mean a great deal to the entire Trinity-Pawling community. Since we are not able to honor these traditions this year, they have been replaced by new, virtual celebrations to recognize the Class of 2020. These virtual events are not intended to replace or mimic what has been lost. However, we hope that they will offer a chance for our community to come together, pay tribute to this remarkable group of young men, and acknowledge the importance of this turning point in their lives.

In life, it is important to mark the end of a journey before beginning the next. The high school journey for these young men is coming to an end and it is important to celebrate and honor this ending. It is also the beginning of a new journey. This is why we use the term Commencement, or the beginning. As we cannot gather in person to honor this ending and beginning, we will gather virtually and in spirit to celebrate and honor this class.

The School plans to welcome the Class of 2020 back to campus in the future for an in-person celebration, in which we can recreate aspects of these time-honored traditions at Trinity-Pawling. Unfortunately, it is not possible to speculate when this will be possible at this point in time. When it becomes possible to begin to develop clearer planning for this event, the School will certainly be communicating details with the Class of 2020 and their families. 


Class of 2020 Alumni Association Induction Ceremony
Welcome to the alumni brotherhood!

On Friday, May 22, Trinity-Pawling seniors, parents, and faculty joined a virtual ceremony to formally welcome the Class of 2020 into the Trinity-Pawling Alumni Association! Headmaster Bill Taylor, David Tyree '88, and Dean of the Senior Class Chris Gillman '05 each addressed the boys, emphasizing the value of their experience at the School, the loyalty and heart of the brotherhood, and the innumerable opportunities that await them on their journey as alumni.

The Class of 2020 is joining the ranks of 6,000+ Trinity-Pawling alumni from across the globe! It's an extended family - and the bond of brotherhood will last a lifetime.

On behalf of the entire School community, we'd like to congratulate the Class of 2020 and welcome them into our supportive and connected alumni network!
