Supporting the Future


Every time a student drops out of school in Massachusetts*, we lose their voice in our classrooms. We lose a perspective that is important for all of us to hear. Most important, they and we lose their promise. 


Learning differences and trauma are leading factors in a student’s decision to drop out. This is why Dearborn Academy’s individualized, student-centered approach is so critical to the future of the young people and families we serve. And this is why your support of Dearborn is needed. It provides us with the resources and tools to reverse years of frustration and failure and help our promising students regain the belief that education has value and provides opportunities.


Your gifts to Dearborn Academy provide funds for a variety of initiatives and activities such as athletic teams, technology, special workshops, field trips or professional development for our faculty. Thank you for your gift.


You can make your gift here: Dearborn Academy Annual Fund.
