Christendom College vs. St. John’s College (Annapolis)

  • Which school would be better for a Traditional Catholic young man looking for a classical education? Christendom is a conservative  Novus Ordo school while St. John’s  is secular? I almost feel like sending a kid to a totally secular school would be better than sending him to an NO school. St. John’s does seem much more prestigious than Christendom. The wiki page gives a good idea of the curriculum

    What do y’all think?

    Are you serious?
    You can’t get a classical education at either one.
    Dr. White (who taught at Annapolis) advises Catholics to stay away.
    In fact, now that the sspx is collapsing into conciliarism, I’m not sure there is a university on the planet which would not present a danger to your faith.
    I believe Bishop Williamson, even before the collapse, was advising all to stay away from these rotten colleges, making exceptions only for trade/vocational schools.

    How does St. John’s not provide a classical education? I’d love to hear Dr. Whites views on the school( he taught at the Naval Academy across the street fr9m St. John’s ) Bp. Williamson’s advice doesn’t apply to everyone. What if a young man wants to become a lawyer, doctor, Professor, etc?

  • Go to a state school and attend a nearby chapel. A lot of people who go to state schools are busy with extracurriculars or work or live at home, they do not party. 

    They are not godless.

    Then, given the universally deplorable condition of universities, he must risk his faith to pursue his desires (imprudent).

    The curriculum is the bigger problem that the partying.  I went to state college, and directed my children toward vocations which won’t require self-pollution.

    The antichrist curriculum.
    St Pius X excommunicated those who sent their children to secular schools.

    But public universities are fine. You cannot expect to only be around Catholics.

    Your viewpoints will be challenged, and that's fine. That is part of existing.

    Totally irrelevant. Pius X did that because there were excellent Catholic schools at that time. One could go to Georgetown or Boston College in 1900 and get a solid class8cal Catholic Education. You can’t do that anymore.
    Also, why don’t you actually look at the link which describes the St. John’s curriculum before making stupid comments. St. Johns focuses entirely on Western classics.

    So because there is no classical Catholic education available anywhere, it becomes permissible to get an anti catholic education?
    Once again:
    You have been told an acceptable college education does not exist (something your own comment acknowledges), but then because you want to go to college, you suppress that knowledge, and shoot the messenger.
    Then why ask advice?
    Go to college and become a liberal or atheist.
