* 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 scientists how to make power armor and killer robots. Elective / specialist classes include Costume Shop, Intro to Flight, Psychic Ethics...

* One main setting for Manga/MyHeroAcademia is the Hero Academy named U.A. This is where the main character learns to fight villains and train 'n stuff. It's really similar to the DWMA from Soul Eater. There are also others out there, but U.A. is the most prestigious of them all.

* The Tomorrow Academy in ''TabletopGame/HaltEvilDoer!'' for ''MutantsAndMasterminds''.

* The Tomorrow Academy in ''TabletopGame/HaltEvilDoer!'' for ''MutantsAndMasterminds''.''TabletopGame/MutantsAndMasterminds''.



* ''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.

* ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' has The Hero Academy where young NEXT (what the series calls individuals who develop superpowers) can learn how to use their abilities and become CorperateSponsoredSuperHero{{es}}. Although notably attending is not a mandatory requirement to becoming a hero, and of the two title characters, only one is a graduate. It's implied the acedemy wasn't even around yet when the other title character first started in the hero business. Also many of the students have abilities that are more in line with BlessedWithSuck or would not be flashy enough to pique the interest of a sponsor company.
