Principia announces new pilot program to let “limited number” of non-CS enroll

August 2, 2019

From the Principia website

In an article entitled:

Enlarging the Tent, Strengthening the Stakes

“…Principia’s Board of Trustees has authorized Principia’s leadership to conduct a limited pilot program enrolling a small number of students—no more than 15 on each campus—who fall outside our regular admissions guidelines. We will be looking for students who desire a Principia education and wish to further their own moral and spiritual growth by joining an educational community that models and encourages viewing and living life through the lens of Christian Science. This can include students and families who are new to learning about Christian Science, are receptive to its principles and values, will respect Christian Science healing, and are attracted to our community for the right reasons.”
