More About St John's College
A National Historic Landmark, St. John's College is located just steps away from the Maryland State House and the Governor's Residence. Originally founded in 1696 as King Williams School, it was chartered as a college by the state of Maryland in 1784 and named St. John's, which it is still known as today. Undergraduates work towards a liberal arts major which includes a curriculum of Ancient Greek, French, Math, Lab Science and Music, among other things. The school's other campus, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has the same curriculum.
The school's proximity to the U.S. Naval Academy makes for a friendly rivalry. As part of a tradition that started in the 1980's, the two schools compete against each other in an annual croquet match that's open to the public every spring.
