Principia School

Student Health Care

The Student Health Care department consists of Christian Science (CS) nurses, Caregivers, an athletic trainer, school counselors, and the Director of Student Health Care. This support is available to all students attending Principia. 

Christian Science Nurses and Caregivers

During the school day a Christian Science nurse is available to all Principia students. The CS nurse is ready to respond to any student who is injured, ill, or needing support. They will respond in ways that are practical, compassionate and in accord with the Church Manual by-law for a Christian Science nurse. Christian Science nursing includes skilled practical care but does not include any medical training, diagnosis, or medication administration.
The CS nursing office and Upper School “quiet room” are located across from the dining room. Here, students can receive support through rest, snacks, parent phone calls, etc so they can jump back into their day. The CS nurse can visit any boarding student who is not able to attend school and coordinate care with the Residential Director. 
In the evenings the Student Life Caregiver attends home athletic events, social activities, and other events on campus. This Caregiver is on duty Monday-Friday evening from 3p-11pm. 
Overnights and Weekends are covered by our Residential Life Caregiver. She is available for overnight care in Campus House as well as weekend support of our boarding students. The CS nurses and Caregivers will respond to all emergency calls on campus and provide initial care as appropriate for students, faculty, staff and visitors. 

Campus House

Campus House is an 8 bedroom care facility located on the School campus. The purpose of Campus House is to support the boarding program with inpatient/outpatient care for those needing closer oversight and assistance. Campus House is available 24/7 during the academic weeks and August sports camp.
