Notes for Prospective Students
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
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.
