St. John’s College: Annapolis, MD and Santa Fe, NM


At a great books college like St. John’s, our authors, from Austen to Einstein, do the talking.

St. John’s is the third oldest college in the United States, offering a curriculum that’s entirely different from what you will find at most other colleges. Not only do Johnnies read the great books of Western civilization, they read these books in small, discussion-based classes of 20 students or fewer. Johnnies don’t just read literature; the common curriculum includes philosophy, political science, chemistry, biology, mathematics, music, language, physics, history, economics, and more.


Johnnies choose from campuses in two of the very best college towns: Annapolis, Maryland, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. After graduation, our students become passionate filmmakers, journalists, lawyers, doctors, teachers, entrepreneurs, professors, psychologists, and more. 70% of graduates receive an advanced degree; St. John’s is the top college in the country for the percentage of students who receive PhDs in the humanities and in top 4% for PhDs in the sciences.
