Summer Academy in Annapolis

About Annapolis

Annapolis is the capital of the state of Maryland. Its population of 40,000 people is associated principally with the government of the state and of Anne Arundel County; with the training of midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy; with the fish, crab, and oyster industries; and with the sailing and recreational activities of the Chesapeake Bay.

Campus Facilities

Since its founding as King William’s School in 1696, St. John’s has been situated in the colonial seaport town of Annapolis. Our 36-acre campus lies in the historic district, adjoining College Creek, one block from the State House and across the street from the U.S. Naval Academy yard. The college’s campus includes 18th-century historic homes, 19th-century Victorian structures, and 20th- and 21st-century buildings.

Athletic facilities on campus include playing fields, tennis courts, a gymnasium with a well-equipped weight room, a dance studio, and a suspended running track. St. John’s Mitchell Gallery presents museum exhibitions by artists of renown. The college also has a coffee shop and several common rooms. In addition, there are smaller, comfortably furnished social rooms in the dormitories and elsewhere on campus.

Travel Information

Annapolis is conveniently located between the metropolitan areas of Baltimore and Washington, DC. There are several airports in the area (Dulles, Reagan, and Baltimore Washington International), all of which have shuttle or car service to Annapolis.
