Making a Principia Education Possible
Principia has made a strong commitment to ensuring that no qualified student is prevented from attending the School or College due to lack of funds. And for College students, we provide as much aid as possible in scholarships and grants, not loans. (Financial aid for School students never includes loans.)
One major benefit of this? The vast majority of Principia College graduates start their careers with minimal or no debt. (Contrast that to a May 2015 report in The Wall Street Journal stating that, nationally, the Class of 2015 is carrying an average student loan debt of $35,000!)
“Thank you … being at Principia is one of the best things to ever happen in my life.”

Unlike many educational institutions, Principia does not accept government funding for financial aid. Even so, with consistent and generous gifts from donors, we were able to provide nearly $18 million in scholarships and financial aid to students on both campuses last year.
A gift to student aid goes directly to support Principia's qualified (and very appreciative!) learners. And if you’d like to create or endow a scholarship, we’d love to work with you to do so. Contact 314.434.2100, ext. 3117, for more information.
