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 our campus 

  • An opportunity to meet current students, principals, our Head of School, and members of our admissions team

  • Grade-level assessment 

  • Interviews with the admissions team and principal for your child’s level

  • Lunch and classroom visits for in-person visitors
     

In-person visiting days are held from 8:00 AM - 3:30 PM CST. 

All visiting students attend a full day of classes on Monday. Prospective parents are welcome and encouraged to attend the full-day Monday program.

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.

Need help with travel expenses? Our travel fund for Christian Scientists typically covers all but $100 per plane ticket for visiting parents and students.

Registration closes two weeks prior to the visit.

*If you wish to visit campus but one of these visit dates does not work with your schedule, please connect with your level-specific Associate Director of Admission and ask about an Independent Visit!
