Great Books Summer Seminar Series

Online for High School Students Aged 15–18

St. John’s offers two great options for high school students: our on-campus Summer Academy program and our online Great Books Summer Seminar Series. The Summer Seminars are ideal for students aged 15–18 who seek intellectual challenges from anywhere in the world!

Our Summer Seminars are real St. John’s College seminars led by our full-time faculty. Here, you can expect small seminars where you engage in vigorous discussions with other students who love great books, new ideas, and deep conversation—just like you.
