Principia School


How we teach

Students are at the center of all we do. Because we want students to not merely know but to understand, we design all learning experiences with a focus on outcomes. Students learn in multiple ways, so our learning environment extends well beyond the classroom, throughout our 360-acre campus, into the broader community, and beyond.

Students thrive within Principia’s robust, experiential approach to learning. Engaged in authentic, hands-on projects, they develop as critical thinkers, effective communicators, and innovative problem solvers—while strengthening core competencies in literacy, numeracy, science, and the arts.

Experiential Learning

Project-based learning channels curiosity as students actively connect theory, practice, and reflection.
