Living at Principia
Principia School offers a safe and welcoming residential boarding option for students in grades 8–12. This home-away-from-home is where students forge lifelong friendships and experience enormous growth—great preparation for thriving in college and beyond. Boarding students live with diverse students from around the world, broadening their perspective beyond what is learned in the classroom.
Boarding students live in one of the two residential houses—Canfield House for boys and Aron House for girls. Each dorm has an independent wing for Middle School students that provides a homelike atmosphere. In these homes, resident counselors cherish, value, and support every student. They encourage self-sufficiency, model supportive habits, and provide opportunities to serve others as emerging leaders.
Our boarding program is reserved for students who are willing to grow in their individual practice of Christian Science, welcome thoughtful group discussions, and strive to apply these ideas to their daily lives and relationships.
