Trinity-Pawling School has the ability to transform lives. Boys arrive as adolescents and graduate as young men. Like all good things in life, our students may not realize how good they have it until they are forced to move on to the next phase of their young lives.
Trinity-Pawling is a boys' school not because single sex education is our mission, but rather, because single sex education helps us accomplish our mission. We want to provide an environment where boys are encouraged to push themselves and explore their talents in all phases of life on campus free from the pressures and distraction that are unavoidable in the context of a coed school.
A few years ago, this approach to teaching was controversial. No longer. Today, expert after expert is acknowledging the fact that America's school culture puts boys at a disadvantage. Today, a growing chorus praises the unique opportunities boys' schools provide. We teach boys and stand by them as they develop into men. We achieve this goal by prodding, praising, cajoling, and exhorting. Our effort succeeds - with boys who are willing to accept this guidance and direction.
