MARYLAND —The Princeton Review has released its annual list of the country’s best colleges. The 2021 list, which features 386 schools, includes 11 in Maryland.
The colleges were selected based on “our high opinion of their academics,” according to the Princeton Review. The organization says it monitors colleges “continuously and annually” to collect data on more than 2,000 schools.
To determine the “best,” Princeton Review staff visits schools and communicates with hundreds of college administrators.
“We pay close attention to feedback we get about colleges from students, parents, educators, and our own staff at the Princeton Review locations across the country,” the organization said in a statement.
Here are the Maryland colleges named among the country’s best by the Princeton Review; they are not put in any order but are listed alphabetically by location:
St. John’s College, Annapolis
U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore
Loyola University Maryland, Baltimore
