St. John’s College Name College of Distinction

St. John’s College is proud to announce its recognition as a 2024-2025 College of Distinction, a prestigious honor that highlights its unwavering commitment to providing an exceptional college education. The award reflects St. John’s two-campus community and the outstanding outcomes of its students.

Since its founding in 2000, Colleges of Distinction has honored schools for their successful implementation of high-impact educational practices and hands-on learning. Unlike traditional ranking systems based on numerical data, its rigorous selection process involves extensive research and in-depth interviews with institutions, and accepts only those that meet the Four Distinctions: Engaged Learners, Excellent Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes. St. John’s College has demonstrated exceptional performance in each of these areas, ensuring a supportive and nurturing environment that prepares students for future academic and career success.

“A college degree opens the door to many opportunities,” said Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer of Colleges of Distinction. “But a truly worthwhile education prepares students to thrive once they walk through that door. St. John’s curriculum fosters meaningful collaboration between students and faculty through experiential learning that is relevant and applicable to the real world. By being among the Colleges of Distinction, the college demonstrated its unique ways of helping students be active in their education.”

“We have never ranked our schools,” Schritter said. “No two students are alike, so there can be no one No. 1 school for everyone. We are much more focused on the innovative ways that universities offer their own brand of a truly enriching college education. St. John’s individual approach to education helps students achieve success in unique ways that cannot be ranked in comparison to others.”

Schritter continued, “We are so impressed to see how St. John’s brings the traditional college experience to life. With a welcoming community, immersive curriculum, and strong support networks, St. John’s is certainly fostering the growth of tomorrow’s leaders.”
