“Education should prepare you for all of your life. It should make you a more thoughtful, reflective, self-possessed and authentic citizen, lover, partner, parent and member of the global economy.”
St. John’s College, which was founded in 1696 in Annapolis, Md., is the third-oldest college in America. They have what the modern world would deem as an unconventional way of teaching. With a rigorous educational program based off of classics from the Western canon rather than a chosen curriculum, students at St. John’s are provided the fundamental tools to be forward thinkers.
