In the wizarding world, there are eleven schools for teaching young witches and wizards magic. These schools generally only accept students from the country in which the school is based in, though some, like Durmstrang Institute, accept any student willing to learn there, but may have other restrictions in place, such as not allowing anyone who is Muggle-born. Traditionally, there has been a rivalry among the various magical schools, and, as such, most schools are hidden both from Muggles and outsiders, with those not in attendance only vaguely aware of the school's general location.
Known wizarding schools
- Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry (Scotland)
- Beauxbatons Academy of Magic (France)
- Durmstrang Institute (Scandinavia)
The above three schools are the largest and most well-known in all of Europe; they are connected via a competition known as the Triwizard Tournament, with the winning school receiving a trophy to take back home.
With Hogwarts, the above three schools are connected via the Wizarding Schools Potions Championship, with the winning school receiving a golden cauldron.
Considering there's only eleven schools, it's possible that a few of the schools work on a more regional level, such as accepting students from nearby countries in the fashion of Beauxbatons, or could act on the Durmstrang system, accepting anyone from any country as long as they're there to learn magic.
Specific areas of study
Outside of general education, the wizarding world offers specialised schools of learning as well. Such schools include the Academy of Broom Flying, Charm School, and the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts.
Behind the scenes
- The Salem Witches' Institute was once thought by some fans to be a wizarding school in the United States of America; J. K. Rowling has since said that the Salem Witches' Institute is a joke on the Women's Institutes in Britain.
