Back to Annapolis

Small College Town

Annapolis is home to two very fine and reputable institutions of higher learning...St. John's College and the U.S. Naval Academy. They both bring a vibrancy and sense of tradition to living in our small town. Each with a strong alumni who return to Annapolis often, with many choosing to live here long term.

St. John's College is a liberal arts college founded in 1696 as a preparatory school, King William's School, the institution received a collegiate charter in 1784. St. John's is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the U.S. Since 1937, it has followed an unusual curriculum, the Great Books Program, based on discussion of works from the Western philosophic and literary canon.

Despite its name, St. John's College has no religious affiliation. The school grants only one bachelor's degree. Two master's degrees are currently available, one in Liberal Arts, which is a modified version of the undergraduate curriculum, and a parallel course of studies in Eastern Classics. Both graduate degrees are awarded to graduate students through the college's Graduate Institute St John's has two U.S. campuses, Annapolis and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Courtesy Wikepedia

The Academy often is referred to simply as "Annapolis." It is also called "The Academy," "The Boat School," or "Canoe U." Sports media refer to the Academy as Navy; this usage is officially endorsed. The U.S. Naval Academy was established October 10, 1845.
