St. John's College, Santa Fe, is an independent liberal arts college with a distinctive academic philosophy emphasizing the study of the Great Books of Western Civilization. Located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the college sits on a 250-acre campus in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, proximate to the cultural offerings of the city center. Founded in 1696 as King William's School and transforming into St. John's College in 1784, with the Santa Fe campus established in 1964, the college is steeped in history yet maintains an intimate atmosphere with a tight-knit student community. The college's curriculum rejects the traditional major and minor framework, and instead students participate in a rigorous interdisciplinary program leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts or a Master of Arts in Eastern Classics. Given its unique academic approach, St. John's College tends to be moderately selective in its admissions process. On-campus living is available to students, with a range of housing options that integrate them into the college's residential and intellectual life. St. John's Santa Fe does not emphasize athletics as a cornerstone of its campus experience, focusing primarily on its rigorous academic programming and in-depth study of classical texts.

In the most recent statistical year 453 prospective students applied, and 245 were granted admission.  Of those admitted 91 enrolled in the school.  398 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 41 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $36,040 plus fees of $1,050.
