Trinity-Pawling School: The Honor Council

QuickLinks T-P Login Home > Students > The Honor Council

The Honor Code


"We, the Honor Council, are formed by seven members of the student body.  We hope to encourage a community of character and mutual trust.  We gather to discuss honesty and integrity and ways to keep these honorable values at the core of the school's identity.  We will hear cases of dishonesty and make recommendations to foster honesty and integrity among the students and within the school.  Finally, the Honor Council holds the Trinity-Pawling Honor Code in trust for all future and past students, faculty and alumni."


The Honor Council is a student organization.  Members are elected to the Honor Council by their peers and are responsible for upholding the Honor Code through personal example while also educating the student body in honorable behavior.  An honor pledge is signed by all students and faculty at the beginning of each academic year as follows:

"Honesty and integrity live at the heart of the school. Behavior inspired by faith and virtue creates honor in the academic community and allows us to live by the principles of the Trinity-Pawling Honor Code: My efforts, preparations, and presentation are at all times honest."

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.
