We are excited to share news about the Trinity-Pawling Middle School: boys don’t have to wait until Upper School to become a boarding student at Trinity-Pawling! A selection of 8th grade boys will be welcomed to join our boarding community each year.
The Trinity-Pawling Middle School curriculum is built on five themes that help boys gain a deeper understanding of their self-awareness, creativity, character and honor, and their place in an ever-changing world. With limited enrollment, the 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 programs 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 Middle School 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.
With just 30 students in our Middle School, our small classes allow teachers to get to know the real boys. They will guide them on a journey of self-discovery to uncover their gifts and talents, and lay the foundation for future success.
Middle School students will have access to all of our Upper School’s facilities, including our Arts Center, our Center for Learning Achievement, and our athletic facilities. Boys will fine-tune their tech skills by using Chromebooks and taking classes on applied technology and robotics. A focus on study skills such as note taking, time management, and test preparation will get students ready for success in the Upper School and beyond.
If you know a boy who would be a great fit for the 8th grade boarding program at Trinity-Pawling, contact JP Burlington at 845-855-4825.
