35 SCHOOLS in MARYLAND

The third permanent English colony in America, Maryland was a notable place from the beginning. Officially named in honor of Queen Henrietta Maria, the name Maryland was almost certainly chosen to call to mind the Virgin Mary, as Maryland was established as a safe haven for English Catholics (who were often persecuted in Protestant England). In fact, Maryland is noted by historians as the first place in the future United States to make religious freedom the law of the land, after conflicts between Catholic and Protestant settlers caused the government to enforce tolerance and peace. Maryland was central to the formation of the United States as well, donating land to establish the capitol city, Washington, DC.

As one of the nation’s smallest and most densely-populated states, Maryland has an exceptionally complex and unique character. Maryland has traditionally played the role of a border state, with aspects of southern, northern, and Appalachian culture, and exhibits a strong melting-pot aspect; nearly a third of Maryland’s population is African-American, and well over half of the under-21 population belongs to minority groups. Maryland is also one of the wealthiest states in the union, with the highest proportion of millionaires per-capita and the lowest poverty rate, largely owing to Maryland’s relationship with Washington DC. As one of the two states bordering the nation’s capital, Maryland has a disproportionate amount of influence, and the federal government makes up a large percentage of the state’s economy.

Maryland’s higher education system is one of the nation’s most elite and prestigious, led by the illustrious Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore’s largest employer, and perhaps the most important state influencer besides Washington). From biotechnology to agriculture, engineering to healthcare, Maryland’s colleges and universities are responding directly to the cues of Maryland’s economic sectors. The University of Maryland is one of the nation’s most esteemed public research universities, and a key component in defence and government research, while a series of top-ranked private liberal arts colleges make up some of the finest institutions in their category, including St. John’s College, Washington College, and Mount St. Mary’s University. It may be small, but Maryland’s influence is exponential.
