NEW at Trinity-Pawling: 8th Grade Boarding
We’re going to let you in on a secret: boys don’t have to wait until 9th grade to become a boarding student at Trinity-Pawling. A selection of 8th grade boys will be welcomed each year to join our boarding community. With limited enrollment, our 8th grade boarding program is developmentally appropriate, individualized, and intentionally designed to nurture Middle School boys in preparation for the Upper School.
Students in the 8th grade will be engaged in a dynamic and comprehensive boarding school experience. Young scholars will immerse themselves in the boarding program and take part in a selection of vigorous activities which allow boys to experiment and explore: arts & innovation, science & math, English language mastery, and cultural field trips. Boys will also be able to benefit from an array of athletic opportunities, including access to higher-level competition if appropriate and warranted.
The 8th grade boarding program is a confidence builder. Our 8th grade boys will be prepared for leadership by their Upper School mentors, they will learn to problem solve and think critically by being encouraged to experiment, and they will build their character by having role models and teachers who are versed in Middle School needs.
Our Middle School curriculum is built on five themes that will help boys gain a deeper understanding of their self-awareness, creativity, character and honor, and their place in an ever-changing world.
With just 30 students, our small classes allow teachers to get to know the real boys. And they will guide them on a journey of self-discovery to uncover their gifts and talents, and lay the foundation for future success. Get ready. Go far.
