Did You Know?

Principia Lifelong Learning activities are open to all adult Christian Scientists and all Principia alumni, as well as their spouses.

Principia offers a wide variety of opportunities to learn and travel with alumni and friends.

Our on-campus Summer Session program gets you back in the classroom, where you can study topics ranging from the Promised Land to Pearl Harbor, from Shakespeare to social media, with engaging instructors. When you’re not in class, lend your voice at hymn sings, draw inspiration from morning Chapel talks, and enjoy concerts, dancing, and other entertainment.

Off-campus opportunities include a wide range of trips. Join alumni and friends on adventures across the globe, led by Principia faculty members. These educational adventures give you the opportunity to experience new cultures, broaden your perspectives, and enrich your understanding.
