Schools & Education in the Wizarding World
While we know that Hogwarts exists for students in the United Kingdom and Ireland to attend school, there’s the rest of the world to worry about too! Here at Vault 713 we offer a number of different schools and methods of education for your characters, which are all outlined below. Please keep in mind that some schools may only accept students by application rather than birth record like Hogwarts, so please be sure to read the information for each school before creating your student character or assigning them a school that they attended in the past.
These schools are currently available for characters who are both students and staff in all eras except Founders. Please refer to the rosters for information on which characters are currently taken. Founders Era currently only accommodates Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry and the Durmstrang Ale Hall, which is not yet a formal school. You can click on any school name to learn more about it.
- Beauxbatons Academy
- Blessed Isis Temple
- Chicago Academy of Wizardry
- Durmstrang Institute
- Hogwarts School
- Romanian Spellcasters Institute
- Smeltings School for Boys (Muggle School)
These schools are available for students only for characters who are adults in one other era. As these schools grow in popularity we may choose to open them up for staff as well and move them to our Active Schools line up. Please note that your character’s adult era does not need to be their primary era, you must only intend to play them in another era. This is to assure that all characters have as many roleplaying opportunities as possible, as we cannot guarantee that our background schools will offer enough active characters to post with. Additional background schools may be added in the future

Homeschool, Muggle School, & No School
As we don’t necessarily know or have outlined what schools are available in different countries across the world, plus some schools do not allow muggleborns, it is entirely possible to create a character who is either homeschooled, attended a muggle school instead of a magical institution, or simply did not attend school at all. Please know that we only recommend this for adult characters who may also be played in the past, since this can severely limit what roleplaying options are available for your character.
