The Washington University School of Medicine is preparing to become a new storied institution, but the new school is not going to be the same St. John’s College, a new school for a different kind of student.
The university, which has been operating since 2007, is poised to become the flagship institution for the St. Johns College family of schools, which includes the Johns Hopkins University.
The university has about 8,000 undergraduates.
The St. Thomas School of Nursing will continue to run its main campus, and its enrollment will be about the same as St. Mary’s College.
The schools have had a history of sharing enrollment numbers, but St. Anthony’s is not scheduled to have a new enrollment in place for the 2018-19 academic year, according to university spokesman Jim Gelles.
St. Lawrence will remain at its current size of about 11,000 students.
St. Johns is the second new school to open in St.-Lévis, just one year after the University of St. Andrews opened its new campus at the same site.
The school at 1515 Broadway St. in St-Lévises has more than 700 undergraduates and is the only one in the area, said St. Ignace College dean of students John McDonough.
It has an enrollment of about 5,000.
“We think the St Johns School is a great example of a new, transformative school and a new way to connect students with a global learning community,” McDonach said.
It’s not the first new school in St Louis.
The University of Missouri, the University at Buffalo and the University Health Network are also new in the city.
The other schools to open at St. Joseph’s College include the University College of Saint Josephs in St Petersburg and the St Francis Xavier College of Education in St Charles.
