The John Dewey Academy is a therapeutic college preparatory boarding school in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, housed in Searles Castle.

It is coeducational and enrolls about 25 high school students, ages 15 to 21, typically in grades 10 to postgraduate. The student body is largely made up of self-destructive adolescents who have not responded well to traditional educational and behavioral treatment. Psychiatric drugs and diagnoses are avoided; instead the school provides a structured environment and encourages positive peer pressure to help students gain control of their lives. Program duration is 18 months or longer.

According to the school, the student-teacher ratio is 3-1 and classes typically average about six students. All graduates attend college.

The school was founded by Dr. Thomas E. Bratter in 1985. It is currently attempting to transition to non-profit operation as the John Dewey Academy, Inc. The school is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and is a member of the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs.
