Information for Teachers and Counselors

St. John’s has many opportunities for teachers and college counselors, starting with the Graduate Institute, which offers the Liberal Arts Education Certificate, Master of Arts in the Liberal Arts, and Master of Arts in Eastern Classics (degrees that can be designed to fit a teacher’s schedule in the fall, spring, and summer). We also offer convenient week-long classes through Summer Classics and the Summer Teacher’s Institute. Annapolis and Santa Fe are ideal cities to spend the summer. In Annapolis, go sailing, walk through historic downtown, or take an excursion to Washington, DC. In Santa Fe, go hiking, enjoy the opera, or shop for art along Canyon Road. In either city, you can live on- or off-campus.

Master’s Degree and Certificate from the Graduate Institute

The Liberal Arts Education Certificate is designed for teachers to hone their craft over two summers. For teachers interested in the Master of Arts in the Liberal Arts, you can complete the degree over four summers. Full and half-tuition scholarships are available for teachers.
