* Xavier's School for Exceptionally Wayward Youth in ''X-Men Noir'' is a reform school... but Professor Xavier taught his students how to be better criminals rather than actually reforming them. He insists this was a ploy to gain their trust so they would gradually open up to him and therapy could begin in earnest. In reality, he was developing and studying them to prove his theory that sociopathy is the next stage of human behavioral evolution.

* The somewhat unsettling on the surface Praetorian Academy in ''{{Comicbook/PS238}}'' may look like this to the GenreSavvy, taking "problem children" amongst metahumans and possibly making them even worse while hiding under a public aegis of WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility and 'discipline'. [[spoiler:The GenreSavvy would be wrong.]]

** The tried to make Hogwarts this, in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Book 7]] when it's being run by the Death Eaters--they change the curriculum to make the Dark Arts and Muggle "Studies" mandatory, making the curriculum all-evil, all the time. It doesn't work on the students except for [[BlackShirt House Slytherin]].

* The US Army School of the Americas was where many future [[BananaRepublic Latin American dictators and generals]] went to [[MajoredInWesternHypocrisy major in Western hypocrisy]]. Founded in 1946, in 1961 it was assigned the task of teaching "anti-communist counterinsurgency" tactics to Latin American military personnel, switching to the War on Drugs and "narcoguerrillas" after TheGreatPoliticsMessUp. Graduates included Manuel Noriega, the drug lord dictator of UsefulNotes/{{Panama}}, and a number of high-ranking officials in UsefulNotes/{{Argentina}}'s UsefulNotes/NationalReorganizationProcess and UsefulNotes/AugustoPinochet's dictatorship in UsefulNotes/{{Chile}}. The school and its graduates came under so much criticism from human rights groups that, in 2000, it changed its name to the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Hemisphere_Institute_for_Security_Cooperation Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation]] in an attempt to distance itself from its checkered past, putting more focus on human rights training.

* MetalGear2SolidSnake: Big Boss runs a child soldier military, outright declaring his pride in creating a cycle of retaliation and death that will ensure the darkest parts of war survive to the modern ages. But given the sheer level of his charisma and military prowess in building his PMC, and the capabilities of his archrivals, it's implied that he was training up the next generation of Millitaries Sans Frontieres, an international infiltration and shock trooper army, to harass and terrorize the world whenever it got complacent enough to send good soldiers into the meat grinder for fun and profit, or when secret organizations attempt to enslave the world ''again''.
