While at Haverford, Frank played soccer and squash. During a semester in the Williams College program at the Mystic Seaport in Connecticut Frank focused on Maritime History. Frank’s academic passion has always been US History, which he loves to study in his free time. After a year at St. Andrew’s School in Rhode Island, and three at the Tuxedo Park School in Tuxedo Park, New York, Frank went to Harvard for a Masters in Education. He then taught history at Wilbraham and Monson Academy in Massachusetts for seven years. At Wilbraham he served as the Head Dorm Parent and coached Middle School Soccer and Outdoor Adventure. Frank also assisted in coaching Varsity Squash at Milton Academy in Massachusetts.

Frank was a camper and, for two years, a counselor at Keeywaydin Camp in Vermont, and he participated in The American Farm School program in Greece for a summer, returning later there as a trip leader. Frank now spends his summers as a camp counselor at Camp Arcadia in Casco, Maine, where he is Assistant to the Director and Head of Safety and wears many other hats.

In his free time, Frank enjoys travel, the outdoors, reading, movies, and photography. Frank lives in Dunbar South with his wife Katy, their daughter Anne, their son Graham, and their cats, Helen of Troy and Otto von Bismarck.

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.


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.

As a convenience, Trinity-Pawling School links to Google Translation which provides an automated translation of our website. The tool is not perfect, and the context of the copy may not be precise when it is translated. As a result, sometimes the translation may lose some of its intended meaning. Therefore, Trinity-Pawling School cannot guarantee the accuracy of the converted text. Where there is any question, the English version is always the authoritative version of the website.
