“You’ll never know the comfort I have had over the past two years, knowing that the place where my son spends the majority of his day is an environment which promotes the same moral attitudes I work so hard on at home.”

“We have dealt with 10+ years of school-related anxiety and stress (crying at drop off, refusing to go into school, perseverating on her day and “mistakes” all afternoon/night), but now… our daughter comes home from school laughing about all the fun she had in classes/with peers and wakes up excited.”


“My child graduated from Dearborn Academy in 2019 … In his last school he was afraid to return there because of daily bullying and ridicule by other classroom students. Dearborn provided a safe place, with appropriate mental health and learning/teaching experts. The report card started to look good, he passed MCAS, he wanted to go to school, he wanted to learn new things.”
