Principia School

Message From the Head of School

Merry Sorrells

Imagine a place where opportunity is everywhere you look and students are seen as limitless in their endeavors. At Principia, we believe every student has everything they need to excel in the classroom, on the sports field, up on stage, and out in the community. We simply help uncover their boundless potential.

Preparing our students to be “future ready” in a world where the future is yet to be defined is what we do best! Creativity, critical thinking, and character growth are the cornerstones of our innovative college-prep programs. All students, Preschool through Upper School, are given abundant opportunities to learn purposefully, think fearlessly, and act selflessly. Every day, students are investigating, creating, collaborating, and problem-solving in our classrooms, across our 360-acre campus, in the St. Louis community, around the country and the world. 

Imagine the possibilities for your child to succeed in a place that values them and realizes their potential to impact the world for good. Here, we cultivate change agents, prepared to take on the world with their unique gifts. By developing the whole child—spiritually, intellectually, physically, and socially—students are equipped to conquer limitations and bring innovative perspectives to their experiences in college and beyond.  

I invite you to discover the Principia difference for yourself. A visit to campus is a great way to see our program up close and discover the possibilities and opportunities that await your child. Come see us today! 

We can’t wait to meet you,

Merry Sorrells Signature
