Winter Classics Tuition

Tuition for Winter Classics 2024 online is $850 per individual seminar.

Seminar Capacity

Online seminars are limited to 14 people. Seminars that are enrolled below 6 participants are subject to cancellation. Low enrollment cancellations afford a full refund to the participant.

Teacher Tuition Assistance

St. John’s College offers tuition assistance to full-time licensed teachers (K–12). With proof of current employment as an educator, participants receive a 50% discount on our regular tuition. Discounts are available to the first 15 teacher registrants. When applying online, please fill out the Teacher Tuition Assistance fields when prompted during registration and provide the name and address of your place of employment and contact information of someone who is authorized to verify your employment. For additional questions about this discount, please contact classics(at)


Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and must send a notification by email to classics(at) of their status as a minor at the time of registration.

Multiple-Seminar Participants

Multiple-seminar registrants will have the option to receive text materials by mail, provided by the college through the college bookstore. Book distribution for multiple-seminar registrants begins in late November and will continue on a rolling basis. Those who qualify will be contacted in advance of books being mailed to verify mailing address.

No-Fee Seminar Charges

No-fee seminar changes offer registrants flexibility. If for any reason you need or prefer to switch your seminar, you can transfer your enrollment to any other seminar with an open space, at no extra cost. Requests for a seminar change must be requested by email at classics(at)


Cancellations can be made before December 18 with a 50% cash refund. After this date, no refunds or credits can be offered.

Wait List

If a class is full, we will start a wait list on a first-come, first-served basis but cannot guarantee that a seat will become available. To join a wait list for a full seminar, submit your request online through the wait list registration page.

If you are currently on a wait list, you will be contacted and offered an open seat before the seminar is again available to new registrants online. You will be asked to respond in a specific number of days to claim the seat. If you decline or we do not hear from you by the requested date, the seat is then released for general online registration.

Other Policies

The college reserves the right to make tutor substitutions if necessary; registrants will be notified of a tutor substitution.

The college reserves the right to cancel a seminar due to low enrollment.

Should a seminar need to be cancelled due to a natural disaster or similar event, participants will be notified by email, and every attempt will be made to reschedule.
