Principia School Visits

In-Person and Virtual Visits

Visits provide a wonderful opportunity to see our school up close and determine if Principia is the right fit for your student and family. We offer both in-person and virtual visits for those considering Principia School. 

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 pictorial or walking tour of our campus 

  • Opportunity to meet current students, principals, our interim 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. 

For students interested in exploring our Middle School and Upper School boarding programs or whose families are considering relocation to St Louis: Students may participate in campus activities over a visiting weekend, attend Christian Science Sunday School, and meet with houseparents and a residential dean. Students considering the boarding program should already be attending a Christian Science Sunday School or be eager to grow in their understanding of Christian Science. Contact jordan.poznick@principia.edu, Sr. Associate Director of Admissions for the Upper School or caroline.boucher@principia.edu, Associate Director of Admissions for the Middle School for more details about overnight visits. 

​Arrival time for a visiting weekend is 5:00 PM on Saturday and concludes on Monday by 3:30 PM CST.
