* DWMA in SoulEater could be considered this, as they teach and train relatively normal children to become effective 'meisters' and 'weapons'. (The weapon children are naturally born with the ability to transform, but it's a trait common enough in the world to not be considered a 'super power'.) In the spinoff SoulEaterNot it is stated that DWMA is recognized as a school that produces heroes of the world and its graduates are respected by the society.

* The Stone Prince in EnchantedForestChronicles went to one of these.
* ''GameWorld'': The Hero School used to train adventurers and knights, now it trains politicians and accountants (aka, the people who actually run the world nowadays).
* The Collegium in the ''HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, at least for Herald-trainees. Students in other disciplines train there too, but for Heralds this is where they learn to master their Gifts (magical or psychic powers) and is the one place they can really call home.

Hero Academy refers to a organization, or part of an organization, that trains people to develop the skills and knowledge, usually both (or either) combat-related or otherwise, needed to be able to do heroic deeds, unlike SuperheroSchool, it usually trains regular people with little to no superpowers and teaches their students the skills they need rather than picking out students that already have extraordinary abilities, though they may pick out individuals that they believe show potential. A subtrope of ExtranormalInstitute: one thing a Hero Academy has in common with SuperheroSchool and WizardingSchool that may separate it from MilitarySchool or MilitaryAcademy is that they function as a society as much as a training program. Compare AdventureGuild, which can be a faction that focuses more on having individuals go on quests than on tutoring students how to successfully go through them

* In ''CodenameKidsNextDoor'', when kids want to become Kids Next Door Operatives, they have to sign up for the KND Cadet Academy for training and studying on being a KND Operative. What separates it from a MilitaryAcademy is that, though KND is modeled as a military organization, as explained on the description above, it's as much of a society as it is a military group, which cause it to fit more into the Hero Academy trope.

* Roleplay/MSFHighForum: School actually kidnaps potential heroes when they are almost dead. There they are taught to be heroes... in very strange ways. It seems that DarkAndTroubledPast is a key to getting into there.

* The Assassins' Guild School in the ''{{Discworld}}'' teaches its pupils to do some pretty extraordinary things - at the price of what is reputed to be a very high drop-out rate...

Many fictional worlds show a hero working his way to fight and stop some great evil. Sometimes their princes or knights fighting to save a damsel in distress, maybe they're mercenaries fighting evil for a paycheck? or a regular person relying strictly on his wits and luck? Either way, they were defined as heroes on their respective stories.
