* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' features a line of "Academy" skins for several champions (specifically [[{{Joshikousei}} Ahri]], [[TheBully Darius]], [[GadgeteerGenius Ekko]], and [[PrincelyYoungMan Vladimir]], among others retrofitted for the line), which eventually developed into its own AlternateContinuity with its own minor lore blurbs. Riot has officially endorsed a fanmade webcomic called ''[[https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/academy-adventures-series-1 Academy]] [[https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/academy-adventures-series-2 Adventures]]'', transplanting a much wider range of champions to fit the {{Troperiffic}} setting of Valoran High.

* ''Toys/MonsterHigh'' has the children of the classic [[Franchise/UniversalHorror Universal Monsters]], as well as other monsters, attending high school.
** The SpinOff ''Toys/EverAfterHigh'' has the same idea, only with fairy tale characters. Much of the conflict comes from the fighting between [[BecauseDestinySaysSo those who want to follow their parents' legacy]] and [[ScrewDestiny those who want to forge their own paths.]]



* ''Toys/MonsterHigh'' has the daughters of the classic [[Franchise/UniversalHorror Universal Monsters]] attending high school.

* There are countless ''WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland'' fics that place the characters in high school. They are sixteen, but they have never been to school on-screen, and usually just focus on making sure the canon couple Duncan and Courtney have extroardiarily large amounts of "Aww" inducing moments and/or angst, annihilating both of their personalities at the same time, usually aided by OC Sues.

* The existence of the ''official'' HighSchoolAU ''AttackOnTitanJuniorHigh'' may be a reference to the extreme popularity of this in the ''Franchise/AttackOnTitan'' fanbase. This is likely due to the fact that ''Attack On Titan'' has a sort of school camaraderie dynamic in the early chapters when the characters are all still part of the 104th Trainees, but it gets quickly broken as soon as they're official members of the Survey Corps, and the brutal world they live in starts killing them and/or pitting them against each other. High school [=AUs=] are a way to preserve that earlier dynamic and keep things fluffy.

* ''WesternAnimation/MegaMan2017'' takes this approach to the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic classic Mega Man series]]. Instead of being a janitorial robot turned fighting robot after one of his co-creators goes rogue, this incarnation of the Blue Bomber is a robot high school student named Aki Light, with Mega Man being his evil-fighting alter ego.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, the Assassins' Guild School (and to a lesser extent the [[GoodOldBritishComp Thieves' Guild School]] and the [[CatholicSchoolGirlsRule Convent School of Seven-Handed Sek]]) are productive settings for fiction; involving both the pupils and their long-suffering educators.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in the Manga/MyHeroAcademia anime. The series takes place mostly in a high school (granted, it's a [[AcademyOfAdventure high school for superheroes]], but a high school regardless). The third ending credits sequence features the characters in a Main/HighFantasy setting. [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Deku]] becomes a clumsy traveller in a rather Bilbo-Baggins-esque get-up (with a sword that's apparently possessed by [[BigGood All-Might]]), Todoroki is a prince in a white horse, Uraraka is a mage, Iida a KnightInShiningArmor, and [[HavingABlast Bakugo]] is a DragonRider. We also get to see all of Class 1-A, who are all featured as some [[AnAdventurerIsYou fantasy class or other]]. The beginning implies this is a class play of some sort.

** ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestraGirls'' takes place in an alternate universe where the characters are all human high schoolers. This means most characters have been aged-down, but some such as the Cutie Mark Crusaders have been aged-up.

* High school [=AUs=] are ridiculously popular in bandom RPF, possibly because the band members were all actually in high school at some point, so canon details like Pete Wentz's soccer-playing or Gerard Way's basement can be included. However, they probably weren't all in high school together.
** Another reason is that some bands tend to have a music video that is set in a high school.
