Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/SuperPowereds'' has five universities in the US that offer the Hero Certification Program for Supers, who wish to become fully-licensed Heroes. The tetralogy is focused on the HCP at Lander University (Lander, CA), although the others are mentioned in spin-offs and on the author's website: Korman University (BigApplesauce), Sizemore Tech (Chicago), West Private University (Orlando), and Overton University (Overton, TX). Other countries have varying means of certifying Supers for Hero work, and there are no international agreements to allow Heroes to operate internationally. HCP involves TrainingFromHell in order to weed out the merely willing from the willing and able. Hundreds of Supers apply each year, only scores are accepted into each school's HCP, only to either quit or be cut from the program. It's possible for those, who haven't made the cut for next year to re-apply, competing with students from the year behind them for spots. Each school graduates only ten Heroes per year. Besides regular (non-Super) classes, HCP students also have several hours of exhausting gym each day to prepare their bodies and to hone their fighting skills. Additionally, as the HCP students advance in years, their classes grow more specialized based on their abilities and powers. Also, while in in the program, students are required to keep the fact that they're in the HCP (or even that they're Supers) a secret from everyone outside the program, which means they can't use their powers in public or attract unwanted attention. HCP facilities are typically located underground, away from prying eyes, with elevators leading to it from dorms with HCP students. During graduation, each new Hero wears a ceremonial white cape. Also, this is where they register their new Hero names (names have to be unique, except in case of legacy names, but those require permission from the original). After that, recent graduates are required to undergo a two-year internship under an experienced Hero.

* Subverted in the webcomic ''EverydayHeroes'', where Summer Mighty attends a normal high school. WordOfGod has it that there is an after-school program for superhumans.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': This is the only entry in the First Class trilogy where we get to see a fully operational Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. Since mutants aren't hiding from humans in the AlternateTimeline after 1973, the [[http://collider.com/x-men-apocalypse-news-things-to-know/ school's enrollment is much greater than what we saw in the original trilogy,]] plus there is generally less angst among the youngsters due to society being more accepting of them (relatively speaking).

* One main setting for BokuNoHeroAcademia is the Hero Academy. This is where the main character learns to fight villains and train 'n stuff. It's really similar to the DWMA from Soul Eater.

** 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 Comicbook/KittyPryde 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 [[Film/XMen 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.

* The primary setting, Freedom City, for the TabletopRPG ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' has at least one of these. It was called the Claremont Academy as a blatant ShoutOut to writer X-Men Creator/ChrisClaremont.
* Ravenswood Academy from the ''[[{{Champions}} Teen Champions]]'' sourcebook.
* The Tomorrow Academy in ''HaltEvilDoer!'' for ''MutantsAndMasterminds''.

*** [[spoiler:Which is eventually subverted; the discipline and the minion masks, as it turns out, is not to create supervillains; it's because the headmaster uses them as methods to instill order and curtail what he views as tendencies towards becoming "uncontrolled" metahumans.]]

* 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.)
