Other Information

Robert Ferraris comes to Trinity-Pawling after coaching twelve years in NCAA DI Men’s Hockey, the last ten years at Mercyhurst and the two previous seasons at American International College.  While at AIC, Ferraris earned a master’s degree in psychology. 

As the associate head coach at Mercyhurst, Ferraris worked both as a coach and recruiting coordinator for the Lakers. As one of Atlantic Hockey’s longest-serving coaches, Ferraris assisted the development of three free agents to National Hockey League (NHL) contracts. In 2014, his support produced the program's first-ever Atlantic Hockey Association (AHA) regular season title, as well as the league's Student-Athlete of the Year, Player of the Year, Goaltender of the Year, Best Defenseman, Sportsman of the Year, and Top Defensive Forward. In 2015, and for the fourth consecutive season, Mercyhurst earned a spot in the league tournament in Rochester, bolstered by four players who reached the 100-career-point plateau, an Atlantic Hockey record.

Before coaching college hockey, Ferraris served one season as head coach of the Connecticut Wolves (U16 AAA) and spent six years playing and coaching more than 360 games in professional hockey.

A 1997 graduate of Saint Anselm College, Ferraris earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and was a four-year ice hockey and golf letter winner for the Hawks, serving both as team captain in 1996-97.  After graduating from Falmouth (MA) High School, he attended Trinity-Pawling for a post-graduate year.

Bob and his wife Sara reside in Starr with their two children, daughter Callia, and son Avery.

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.
