Living at Principia
Boarding at Principia provides 24/7 opportunities for students to live, learn, and grow together. That’s why nearly 150 students from all over the United States—and the world—choose to live on campus each year. In fact, more than 50 percent of all Upper School students are boarders.
All four of our dorms (one each for Upper and Middle School boys and girls) are safe, secure, and welcoming. In these homes, houseparents cherish, value, and support every student. And in this family-like setting, boarders form lifetime friendships and learn lifelong lessons.
Meet a few former Upper School boarders and hear what they loved about dorm life.
