About St. John’s College
St. John’s College is a magical place where books come to life. Here, students have been studying the Great Books since 1937 by reading only primary sources. Through conversational seminars and critical analysis students engage directly with authors of some of the most influential works of Western Civilization in mathematics, history, literature, philosophy, the laboratory sciences, politics, economics, and music.
The college was founded in 1696 as King William’s School in Annapolis, Maryland and chartered as a college in 1784. With the addition of the college’s second campus in Santa Fe, NM in 1964, the college is home to 820 undergraduates who are wonderfully diverse, adventurous, and passionate about learning.
