Other Information

Adam grew up in Pawling and graduated from Trinity-Pawling in 1991. At T-P Adam earned varsity letters in bicycling, cross-country and track. Adam returned home to T-P wanting to give back to today’s boys much of the direction and confidence he gained at T-P.

After graduating from T-P, Adam earned an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering Technology from SUNY Canton where he also met his future wife Jennifer from Cazenovia, N.Y. He then transferred to Rochester Institute of Technology while Jennifer pursued her career as a veterinary assistant. While at RIT, Adam earned an Army ROTC Scholarship, participated with the swim team and completed his degree in Civil Engineering while simultaneously learning to be an Army officer in the Army ROTC program. Adam and Jen married in May 1996 during Adam’s senior year. Adam went on active military duty in January 1997.

In the Army Adam served for four years with a focus on logistics and the maintenance of the armored combat fleet in Schweinfurt, Germany. Adam and Jen enjoyed traveling central Europe, but particularly enjoyed visiting the Alps any time they could. Their last two years in the Army were in Fort Knox, Kentucky where Adam served as the company commander of a training company and helped manage the training fleet of vehicles as well.

Adam’s interests include biking, skiing, running, hiking and swimming. He also enjoys theology, wood working, and restoring antique tools. Adam, Jennifer and their daughter Ahna live in Johnson I.

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.
