The John Dewey Academy
We provide an individualized and comprehensive college preparatory education in a therapeutic setting. Our students are bright adolescents with a history of self-defeating or self-destructive choices. Our peer-based approach leads students to high levels of achievement and inspires them to develop in ways that promote self-respect, maturity, and respect for others.
