John Dewey Academy Graduates
Tom Bratter, founder and President of The John Dewey Academy in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, has been elected Vice-President of
the Small Boarding Schools Association. Tom also reports that 75% of the graduates of the first four classes from John Dewey Academy
have received college degrees, and that 77% of their current college students are completing their requirements. Three John Dewey
graduates are currently attending the University of Chicago, which was recently voted to be the most joyless place by a poll conducted
by Harvard. Tom also reports that current seniors have been admitted Early Decision by Clark University, The College of the Holy Cross,
Emerson College, Northwestern and Ohio Wesleyan Universities, Sarah Lawrence College, and the University of Rochester. There is guarded
optimism that Boston College, Brandeis, George Washington, Georgetown and Tulane Universities will accept the rest in two months.
On January 2nd, 1994, the 1995 campaign commenced for current Juniors at The John Dewey Academy.
