Piraeus 2014

The ancient port of Athens, the Piraeus, is a lively juncture of departures and homecomings. As in the days of Socrates, it represents the pulse-point of the community. A reunion, a chance encounter, a new beginning, an opportunity to reinvent one's self — all these possibilities exist at the Piraeus.

St. John's College, in collaboration with the Alumni Association, is pleased to offer Piraeus 2014, a continuing education program for alumni. We invite your participation as we strive to awaken the curiosity that stirred Socrates to venture down to that port and led to journeys that shape our thoughts and lives today.

All fees are due at the time of registration. Recent alumni (those who graduated in the classes of 2004 and later) may receive a 50% discount on tuition for any session. If for some reason you will be unable to attend the Annapolis Piraeus program, the Cancellation and Refund Policy is as follows:
