Overview

Overview

John Dewey Academy says

Housed in historic Searles Castle in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, the John Dewey Academy is a coeducational college preparatory boarding school with a strong therapeutic component. Our mission is to provide intensive, individualized instruction and therapy to alienated, angry, self-destructive, but bright adolescents. This approach inspires students to use, rather than to continue to abuse, their talents. This vision is admittedly an ambitious one: we aim to restore hope, to rebuild families, and to transform students' lives.
