Trinity-Pawling uses SSAT’s Standard Application Online (SAO) as our singular application. Applicants must register at SSAT in order to create a Web Login ID. Please follow the instructions provided for submitting testing, teacher recommendations, and essays. Your application is forwarded to Trinity-Pawling once you have paid the application fee. Schools that use their own recommendation forms or use letters of recommendation must send these directly to Trinity-Pawling and not to SSAT. Complete the online application by January 15.  

International Students for whom English is a second language. We require all applicants whose first language is not English to adequately demonstrate English competency as a part of the application process. 

Sign up for the SSAT and send us your test scores.  9th and 10th grade candidates should take the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) which is held on eight Saturdays during the testing year. Please remember to add Trinity-Pawling School (7750) when submitting your scores.  PSAT and SAT results reported in the current academic year are acceptable for 11th, 12th, and PG applicants.

In addition to the SSAT, PSAT, or SAT, you should take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Our School Code for TOEFL is B074. Please be sure to request, at the time the test is taken, that the test results be sent directly to Trinity-Pawling.

Students may also demonstrate English competency by submitting scores from IELTS (International English Language Testing System). Our institution requires an overall band score of a 6.0 or higher on the IELTS.

PLEASE NOTE: Trinity-Pawling only accepts scores submitted electronically by the IELTS test center. No paper Test Report Forms will be accepted. An institutional code is NOT required. Please contact the test center directly where you took the IELTS test and request that your test scores be sent electronically using the IELTS system. All IELTS test centers worldwide are able to send scores electronically to our institution.

Students may also take the Duolingo English Proficiency Test for their standardized testing requirement.

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.
