St. John’s College is a place where students study the works of history’s greatest thinkers. Students in Annapolis and Santa Fe have established traditions that date back decades or longer, from signing the college register during their first day on campus to taking part in “senior prank” days before graduation. Students, called “Johnnies,” enjoy many of the same activities as their predecessors from years past. Learn more about our college history.

They run a discussion based, great books program. You might lay hands on two textbooks during your 4 years. The rest of what you read (and you will read A LOT) is primary sources-- covering math, science, history, philosophy, literature, music, and language. For example in Freshman math, you read through about 2/3 of Euclid's Elements, and begin Ptolemy's Almagest.
I LOVE this school. Every liberal arts college claims to teach critical thinking, but I think St. John's Delivers that on another level. Professors expect you to make intelligent sense of a lot of very difficult texts, very fast. If you can figure out chemistry from Berthollet and Proust, you can probably figure most things out. Its a challenge, if you're looking for one.
