Here’s an interesting summer enrichment opportunity for those of our Scholars who love spending time with a good book.
The Summer Academy at St. John’s College is a pre-college, residential summer program that offers high school students ages 15 to 18 an exceptional learning experience. Organized in one-week sessions, students read and discuss texts from the Western canon in small classes guided by St. John’s renowned faculty. Students live in dormitories and share campus amenities as well as enjoy off-campus excursions to celebrated sites. Sessions are hosted on both St. John’s campus locations, in Annapolis, MD and Santa Fe, NM.
Tuition is $990 per week-long session and scholarships are available. (Tuition includes room and board, books, activity fees and, if needed, transportation from local airports to campus.)
Students may spend a week or more on both campuses.
