2024 Stepping Up Ceremony

Trinity-Pawling’s beloved Stepping Up Ceremony was held in All Saints’ Chapel on Friday afternoon, May 24, 2024. The Stepping Up tradition traces its roots all the way back to the 1930s. In this service, held just before Commencement, each class steps up to the next level. Underclass academic honors are awarded, leadership roles for the following year are announced, and the service concludes with naming the next group of Prefects who will lead the School in the coming year.
