“Hillsdaleā€™s Graduate School of Statesmanship demands that its students ask questions that other institutions may be afraid to ask. What is the best political regime? What political regime did our Founding Fathers have for the United States? Is our country currently living up to that vision?”


John Scheck grew up in Ave Maria, Florida, and during high school discovered an interest in politics. After graduating, he took a gap year with a religious order in Mexico where he developed a deep love for realistic human philosophy, as called for by St. Pope John Paul II’s encyclical Fides et Ratio. Inspired by this experience, he graduated from Ave Maria University with a B.A. in Philosophy and Communications. Attending Hillsdale’s Graduate School of Statesmanship was the perfect opportunity to continue his studies of Political Philosophy in the classical tradition.
