Post-graduate Program

Annually, Trinity-Pawling accepts a limited number of Post Graduate students who will complete an extra year of high school prior to matriculating to college. Although PGs only attend T-P for one year, they are welcomed into our community as vital members of the senior class. Trinity-Pawling's academic structure, broad availability of courses and electives and strong athletic programs provide a fulfilling experience. Strengthen your academic profile & educational maturity or improve your athletic abilities!


A PG schedule will be designed to challenge the student, enhance his current academic profile and to prepare him for the rigors of college. Stronger students will be enrolled in one or more of our 18 AP (Advanced Placement) classes. The same structure, resources and support that has enabled T-P students to graduate successfully for over 100 years, is made available to all PGs.


Whether a PG wants to expand his opportunities to carry on his athletic career into college, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of the competition, Trinity-Pawling can satisfy his need. If he has set his sights on a varsity team, he should contact us early since spaces for PGs are limited.

College Counseling

As an accepted PG, our college counselors will be in contact with him almost immediately upon acceptance to begin the process. We want him to be as prepared as our rising seniors who began the process during their junior year. He will review and revise his college list, generate new interests, initiate new contacts and improve his chances of successful matriculation.

In general, our PGs are highly motivated and working toward a goal---graduation and beyond. Trinity-Pawling post graduate students are a welcomed part of our long-standing traditions throughout the school year, and are expected to participate in our Stepping Up Ceremony and Graduation.

A Commitment to Character

As we prepare young men for the world beyond Trinity-Pawling, we seek to convey this fundamental lesson: Character is the single most influential force to propel us forward - whether academically, physically, socially, or spiritually.

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.
