The Principia

School In-Person Visits

On-campus visits provide a wonderful opportunity to see our school up close and meet the people that make Principia so special. Tour our beautiful 360-acre campus, ask questions, and get a feel for what we’re all about. 

Regardless of whether you have started an application or are just exploring, the visit is important to the admission process and is required for admission.

Visits Include: 

  • A walking tour of the school and campus 
  • An opportunity to meet current students, principals, our Head of School, and members of our admissions team
  • Classroom visits & writing assessment
  • Lunch

In-person visiting days are held from 7:30 AM – 1:00 PM CST. 

Upper School students attend a half day of classes on Monday. Prospective parents of all level students are welcome and encouraged to attend the half-day program as well.  Middle and Lower School students attend a full day of classes on Monday and parents will need to return to pick them up at 3:15 p.m.

Registration closes one week prior to the visit.

About Visiting Weekends

A visiting weekend is for those exploring our Middle or Upper School boarding programs or for families considering relocation to St. Louis. Our boarding program is reserved for students who are ready to grow in their study and practice of Christian Science.

A visit is a great opportunity to see what it’s like to learn, live, and play at Principia. Full-immersion visiting weekends include two nights in a dorm and are geared towards students entering grades 7–12.
