Summer Programs at St. John’s

St. John’s College offers several Great Books-focused summer programs, including Summer Academy for high school students, Summer Classics for adults, and the Teachers Institute. These one to two week programs offer a taste of life on the St. John’s campuses in both Annapolis and Santa Fe, as well as a chance to engage in our signature seminar-style classes.

Summer Academy for High School Students

Summer Academy is the ultimate pre-college experience for high school students. With options of residential weeks on either of our campus locations (ages 15–18) or online (ages 14–18), students take part in deep discussions with their peers and St. John’s faculty for an exceptional learning experience.
