* 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 genre savvy would be wrong.]]

** The School of Mensis is a heretical offshoot of the Healing Church, itself splintered from Byrgenwerth. It is, bar none, the most malevolent faction of the game, having no issue with kidnapping people to serve as fodder for their rituals. Their land has been twisted into an expanse of mountains bearing countless screaming faces, rising above a sea of fog. Their headquarters serve as a prison for an EldritchAbomination and an incubator for another.

* Byrgenwerth College in ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}. It was their decision to crack open the Pthumerian tombs under Yharnam that started the city's descent into madness, and it ''was'' a demented former student that started the blood craze. Their decision to keep investigating alternate ways of understanding the Pthumerians' mastery of magic aside from Old Blood (the Fishing Hamlet massacre, research on Insight) brought them into conflict with the Healing Church, and spelled doom for everyone involved.

* 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 CaptainAmerica.

* The dark elven city of Menzoberranzan from ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has one, most elaborated on in R. A. Salvatore's Drizzt novels (but also appearing in Elaine Cunningham's Liriel novels and the ''Literature/WarOfTheSpiderQueen'' series). Tier-Breche (usually simply called "The Academy") is divided into three sub-schools, Melee-Magthere (for warriors), Sorcere (for wizards) and Arach-Tinillith (for the clergy of [[GodOfEvil Lolth]]). Considering its two functions are to train the students to lethal efficiency in their particular discipline and firmly induct them into a ReligionOfEvil, it's a very scary place. Since the main hero Drizzt is a warrior, his education mostly takes place in Melee-Magthere - and it's ripe with backstabbing, ClingonPromotion and things like using children to bait monsters for students to practice on. And yet Drizzt's mentor Zaknafaien adamantly insists that he goes there, because apparently Sorcere ''is even worse''.
