7 Fictional Schools to Enroll At If Your Hogwarts Letter Never Arrives

If you walked into the halls on your first day this year wishing they had a little more of any of the above: magic, adventure, romance, or secrets – this roundup is for you. It may be too late to switch schools now, but read on for 7 to consider transferring to at the semester!

1. Grove Academy from Rebel Belle & Miss Mayhem 

It’s Harper Price and some of her classmates that make first period a little more than ordinary: after an incident at a school dance, she acquires crazy powers and becomes one in a line of ancient guardians. Maybe think twice about borrowing her lip gloss. And look out for the third book, LADY RENEGADES, on April 12th 2016!

2. St. Vladimir’s Academy from Vampire Academy

This is where vampires go to get an education in magic, half-human teens train to protect them, and you go when you’re craving a binge-reading session that will turn you into a nocturnal creature. 

2. The Academy from Zodiac

Two notes: 1. expect astrology to be on the final and 2. you may also be tasked with uniting twelve worlds as one Zodiac against an exiled guardian who’s returned to seek revenge. 

4. Blythewood Academy from the Blythewood Series

A suggested packing list for this elite girls’ boarding school: a toothbrush, any extraordinary powers you might have, and a keen eye for the distinction between good and evil.

5. J.P. Zenger High from Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie & Sophomores and Other Oxymorons

Hear us out: while you may think you’re walking into an ordinary day in a high school just like your own, it 100% won’t be because you’ll have Scott guiding you through with his infinite wisdom. Case in point:

“If you’re friends with a girl in kindergarten, try to stay friends with her when you get older because otherwise she might forget she ever knew you, and she might get so drop-dead gorgeous you don’t have the guts to remind her that you once shared a pack of peanut-butter crackers.”

6. The School of America in Paris from Anna and the French Kiss

“Who sends their kid to boarding school? It’s so Hogwarts. Only mine doesn’t have cute boy wizards or magic candy or flying lessons.”

What you and Anna will learn pretty quickly is that Paris is FULL of cute boys, even if they’re not wizards, and that wishes have a way of coming true in the city of lights.

7. Wexford Boarding School from the Shades of London Series

Well, you definitely won’t be bored starting a new boarding school in London while a killer is mimicking the deeds of Jack the Ripper and you can tag along with Louisiana teen Rory…who’s the only one who can see him.

Hogwarts House Christmas Aesthetics
  • <p> <b><p></b> <b>Gryffindor:</b> Waking up early to open presents. Drunken caroling. Stockings overstuffed with sweets. Mistletoe in every doorway. Elf on a Shelf. Terrible Christmas puns. 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas.' Animated Christmas films. Ugly sweater parties. Handmade gifts. Sledding down the steepest hill in town. Staying up late and trying to catch Santa. The smell of cinnamon. Indulgently flavored coffees. Taking a nap after Christmas dinner. Brightly colored wrapping paper. 'Elf.'<p/><b>Slytherin:</b> Midnight Mass sung entirely in Latin. Classy Christmas parties. Breaking out the good china for Christmas dinner. Twinkling white lights that line the roof and doorway and windows. Sneaky mistletoe kisses. Driving around the neighborhood on Christmas Eve to see all the decorations. Extravagant gifts. Ice sculptures. A perfectly harmonized arrangement of 'The Carol of The Bells.' A wine bottle Advent calendar. Snowman building competitions. The quiet crackling of the fireplace. Eggnog-spiked coffee. Shoving handfuls of snow down the back of your best friend's shirt and then running for it. 'A Christmas Carol'.<p/><b>Hufflepuff:</b> Making snow angels with your friends and then helping each other up so there's no stray hand prints. Working the soup kitchens on Christmas Eve. Super thoughtful gifts. The smell of freshly baked cookies and fudge. Reciting 'Twas the Night Before Christmas from memory alone. Setting out treats for Santa and the reindeer. 'O Come All Ye Faithful.' Santa hats. Eskimo kisses. Candy canes in mugs of steaming cocoa. Curling up in front of the fire with your sweetheart and a heavy blanket. Building gingerbread houses. 'Miracle on 34th Street.'<p/><b>Ravenclaw:</b> Late-night stargazing on Christmas Eve. The way the morning light shines through hanging icicles and casts prisms of rainbow light across the snow. Candlelight in windows. Perfectly hung tinsel on the Christmas tree. Personalized Christmas cards. 'The Little Drummer Boy.' Practical gifts. Building the perfect igloo in the front yard. Waking up to a fresh later of snow on Christmas morning. Sprigs of spearmint in your morning cup of tea. A family photo where everyone's smiling and no one blinks. Shimmering, decorative bows on all the gifts. Artfully arranged stockings. 'It's a Wonderful Life.'<p/></p><p/></p>

HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY PENTATONIX | JUNE 4TH, 2011

“It feels amazing. It’s so awesome because we were, and still are, such underdogs coming into this music industry. We went through so much, especially in the beginning with people saying: ‘No, I don’t believe in you - This will never work - This will never be on the radio -This can never win a Grammy.’ So now we’re starting to prove people wrong. Our fans are so passionate and they support us so much. They’re constantly engaged in everything that we do, and that’s been really encouraging throughout this whole journey.” - Scott Hoying
