* Drearcliff Grange is a 1930s girls' school which takes "talented" students in Creator/KimNewman's ''Literature/DiogenesClub'' stories. Combined with BoardingSchoolOfHorrors for a parody of Girls' School stories of the period. (Incidentally, the headmistress makes it clear that she doesn't much care if one of her girls becomes a super''villain'' instead of a super''hero'', just so long as she makes use of her talent and doesn't settle for being mundane.)

[folder: Web Original ]] * ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' has ''Roleplay/FreedomCityPlayByPost'' maintains one of these, that continuity's version of the Claremont Academy mentioned above under ''MutantsAndMasterminds''. Claremont, a friendly place in a friendly city, is run by Duncan Summers, the local {{Expy}} of the Neal Adams-era Batman, with the standard tropes of the SuperheroSchool genre. Only makes occasional use of [[CanonSue canon]] characters, as of course they're all [=NPCs=]. Is somewhat more realistic than some super-schools in that [[TykeBomb kiddie supervillians]] get counseling. * The WebOriginal fiction series [[Literature/WhateleyUniverse Whateley Academy]] is built around this trope. In this [[TheVerse universe]], [[PubertySuperpower mutant traits manifest around fourteen years of age]] (often even if [[CompulsorySchoolAge starting out older]]), so mutants from all over the world go to high school at [[ShoutOut Whateley]] Academy in [[Creator/HPLovecraft Dunwich]], New Hampshire. There is a danger room equivalent or two, martial arts, magic arts, and psychic arts classes, and curricula ranging from normal high school stuff all the way to 'workshop' courses that teach young mad scientsts how to make power armor and killer robots. Elective / specialist classes include Costume Shop, Intro to Flight, Psychic Ethics... ** However, school administration insists that under the Whateley Charter they are an AcademyOfAdventure instead of a Superhero summer camp. Technically, though, they're not superheroes, but kids School. Whateley is ''strictly neutral'', accepts any and all mutants, good, evil or neutral; powerful, weak, or [[CosmicHorror Class X]], and is protected and funded by several groups of heroes, villains, and "superneutrals" to provide a safe location for superpowered children to grow up. The headmistress (a retired heroine of some renown) has had to remind several groups (especially the protagonists) of this fact repeatedly. This treaty [[TruceZone also forbids any faction to attack any other faction on the Whateley campus]] on pain of all Charter signatories going EnemyMine on the perpetrator. Parent-teacher conference day must be quite an experience for all concerned... * The Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse features two such schools: the Hyperion Academy is located in New York State and resembles a Ivy-League-prep school more than anything else. The Venture Institute in Minnesota outside the Twin Cities, and more resembles ''Film/SkyHigh'' than anything else. The latter is specifically designed for superpowered teens who can't maintain a secret identity for whatever reason. * The web serial ''Literature/TheDescendants'' is packed to the gills with PsychicPowers.these; from the now-defunct Psionics Training and Application Academy run by the BigBad, to the Liedecker Institute currently being run by the heroes in unknowing cooperation with the local AntiVillain.

* The TropeMaker is Professor Charles Xavier's school in ''Comicbook/XMen''. Depending on the continuity, Emma Frost's school, the [[ComicBook/GenerationX Massachusetts Academy]], may count as a supervillain school if she is Xavier's foe. ** In fact, the Xavier Academy jumped around a bit between being a SuperheroSchool, and a superhero base which happened to be disguised as a school, largely because, until Kitty Pryde joined the Creator/ChrisClaremont "all-new all-different" X-Men's ages ranged from the 20's onwards, with none of them even of college age. The films cemented the concept in people's minds by depicting the X-men as teachers of a large non-superhero student body, and the {{Comic Book}}s [[RetCanon followed suit]]. Xavier's school now has a lot of non-superhero mutants of all ages, learning to control their powers as well as reading, writing, and 'rithmetic. A few of them 'graduate' to X-Men status. There's also a relatively new X-comic focusing on the students (of course, trouble seems to find ''them'') that's pretty much a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Generation X'' and ''ComicBook/NewMutants.'' Its title changes a lot, though.

*** Meanwhile, the fallout of ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen'' has a rogue Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto running the "New Charles Xavier School for Mutants". While unlike any previous incarnation its existence is secret and it doesn't present itself as a real private school (Cyclops and his team being outlaws and all), there ''are'' classrooms and the senior members do teach newly manifested mutants.
