Community Seminars Fall 2016

Community Seminars are an opportunity to read and discuss great works in the unique St. John’s manner. Seminars are small in size to ensure a spirited dialogue where all participants have a voice. For many participants, the discussion-based learning model is an entirely new experience remarkably different from past learning venues. Seminars are open to curious minds from our surrounding community, including high school aged students and adults of all ages.
