From preschool through senior year, Principia students ignite their imaginations and hone their skills as they explore the arts—theatre, music, singing, dance, and the visual arts. Top-notch training and facilities help unleash their innate creativity while encouraging collaboration, persistence, careful listening, and keen observation, skills that enrich every aspect of student life and learning.
