Mission Statement

St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland was chartered in 1784 upon a most liberal plan for the benefit of youth of every religious denomination. In 1937 the New Program, under which the college still operates, was instituted. Under it, we help our students learn to ask fundamental questions and practice thoughtfulness in public. We introduce them to the textual tradition of reason that illuminates such central features of modern life as democracy and technology, as well as to the literary and musical tradition of the West. We are committed to the use of a list of great books that is both fairly stable and under continual review. These are books agreed to be excellent, to form a coherent sequence, and to raise most cogently questions we want our students to consider. We foster literacy in three kinds of texts: verbal, mathematical, and musical.

The town that the college is set in is nice and there are many unique places nearby and, to top the geography off, you're 30 minutes away from both Baltimore and DC. The social atmosphere is amazing and none of the clubs charge you to join. You can join clubs that include language, dance, sports, martial arts, poetry, writing, etc. The school is really the place to be if you've the personality and interests of the Renaissance Man.
