* In the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, any institution run by {{Taskmaster}} is this - he first came to prominence running schools for henchmen of other supervillains. Later, during ''Comicbook/DarkReign'', he was in charge of ''The Initiative'' for a while. He's so good at what he does that the government sometimes hires him to train their operatives, including a replacement ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

* From ''Literature/HarryPotter'': Durmstrang, a {{downplayed}} example, where people are taught the Dark Arts instead of Defense Against the Dark Arts, has a slight reputation of being this. Grindelwald, Dumbledore's old arch-nemesis, comes from here. We do meet Durmstrang alumni who are definitely not evil and take a hard stand against evil (Viktor Krum comes to mind right away) and this isn't shown as being very odd. And even Durmstrang had to draw the line and expel Gellert Grindelwald, where a school that really played this trope straight would probably have nurtured him.
