College Placement For The Class Of 2006

Tom Bratter, President

July 17, 2006

Since the first class graduated in 1987, 100 percent of John Dewey Academy (JDA) graduates have attended college. Based on these successful college placements, The John Dewey Academy is indistinguishable from even the most exclusive and prestigious prep schools available in the United States. Students are accepted into the JDA program based on an interview that ignores standardized test scores and academic performance. At JDA, most of the students perform at least one grade below their chronological age when they enter the program. Tom Bratter, president/ founder of The John Dewey Academy said, "JDA is difficult to describe because we are more than a prep school in that we also offer therapy. However, since we are very strong in our academic components, I guess the best way to describe this unique Academy is to say it is a college prep school with the added benefit of a therapeutic component."

Seventy-five percent of JDA graduates attend the 50 most selective colleges in the country as determined by U.S. News & World Reports. Eighty-five percent of JDA graduates attend the top 100 colleges. One-third made the Dean's List at Barnard, Bates, Carleton, Columbia (College and University) and Connecticut Colleges; Cornell, George Washington and Georgetown Universities; Hobart, Holy Cross, Mount Holyoke and Oberlin Colleges; Ohio Wesleyan University, RPI, Rochester University, Spelman and Skidmore Colleges, Syracuse University (Visual and Performing Arts and Newhouse School of Communications), Trinity College, Tufts University, Union College, the Universities of Chicago, Hartford, Massachusetts and Oregon; Vassar, Wellesley and Williams Colleges.

The class of 2006 will attend Goucher College, Indiana University, Muhlenberg College, RPI ($160,000 four-year scholarship), Skidmore College (2), SUNY Binghamton, Trinity College, University of Chicago (2) and Williams College.

More than seventy percent graduate from college and one-third attend graduate school. Two alumni of the JDA class of 2002 will attend Harvard and NYU Law School. Since the new millennium, less than ten percent have discontinued their education, felt the need for psychotherapy or psychotropic medication and/ or, regressed to abuse psychoactive substances
