Do you mean something like:

| % screen -S sockname
| % screen -x sockname -X 'split'
| % screen -x sockname -X 'split -v'
| % screen -x sockname -X 'focus down'
| % screen -x sockname -X 'split -v'

.. where ‘sockname’ is the name you give to your screen session at
startup .. such as ‘session1’.. or whatever..¹

For details, see:

| % man screen
| % info screen
| % screen --help


¹ The above does it remotely, targeting an already-running screen
  session, but naturally, you could stick the same commands in your
  ~/.screenrc, like so:

  | screen -S sockname
  | split
  | split -v
  | focus down
  | split -v

  .. and you will have four sub-windows immediately after you fire up
