Seven Books With Cool Schools

Reblogged from BookLikes:

Hey, it's back-to-school time! If you cannot stand this thought, read the books under the desk (hush, hush), and visit 7 schools from books that make yours look boring.

 

 

 

1. Hogwarts

  

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a school of magic for children aged eleven to eighteen. Hogwarts is divided into four houses, each bearing the last name of its founder: Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, Rowena Ravenclaw and Helga Hufflepuff.

 

              

 

 

 

 

2. Hecate Hall (Hex Hall)

 

Hecate Hall (also known as Hex Hall) is a three-story reformatory school built in 1854 for Prodigium children ages twelve to seventeen. Once a student has been sent to Hecate, they are not released until their eighteenth birthday. It is located in Graymalkin Island, just off the coast Georgia. The classes are based on some found at other boarding schools: Prentiss is a boarding school for witches, Mayfair a boarding school for faeries, and Gervaudan a boarding school for shapeshifters. A new program allowed vampires to attend Hecate. Every year Hecate would take in a young vampire to study with Prodigium in hopes they would reform. (via)

 

       

 

 

 

 

3. Battle School

 

Battle School is a school where young, brilliant boys and (rarely) girls are sent to be   trained to become officers and commanders of the International Fleet. Battle School is in space, and only few children are chosen to go there. Children are taken to Battle School at very young age of 5 or 6 years old. They are taught academic subjects, like heavy grounding in mathematics and science, a setup for work in space but the real evaluation is in battle simulations. 

 

 

 

 

 

4. St. Vladimir's Academy

 

St. Vladimir's Academy is a boarding school where Moroi and the guardian novices are educated. It is located in the deep forests of Montana and protected with charmed wards placed just outside the school grounds. St Vladimir’s Academy is named after a Moroi saint who was dedicated to spiritual practices and went to particular lengths in order to further the special bond between Moroi and their guardians.

5. Welton Academy

 

Welton Academy is a conservative school in Vermont. Welton, like many prep schools, admitted only boys. The boys create a secret club, Dead Poet's Society. They met in a cave to discuss poetry, philosophy and other topics.

 

 

 

 

 

6. Wayside School

 

Wayside School was supposed to be composed of thirty classrooms, on one story. However, the builder constructed a thirty story building with an extra large playground. The higher one climbs, the stranger the people and the weirder the incident.

 

 

 

 

 

7. The Xavier's School

for Gifted Youngsters

  

The Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters is a special institute created by Professor Charles Xavier to train young mutants in controlling their powers and help foster a friendly human-mutant relationship.
