As summer draws to a close, the dreaded back to school season is coming quicker than any student would like. After the amazing summer that I had, it’s especially disappointing to go back to school but while in class, I know I’ll be daydreaming about attending these amazing YA high schools.
Hardwick Hall, I’m From Nowhere by Suzanne Myers
At Hardwick Hall, the classic American boarding school, students row, horseback ride and even mention using the Harkness method.
St. Vladmir’s Acadamy, Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
This supernatural academy where students sleep during the day and take classes at night seems anything but dull. Plus, the students learn magic!
American Ballet Conservatory, Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton
As a dancer, the chance to study at an elite ballet school seems like a dream come true. And while The American Ballet Conservatory is certainly that, I might have some qualms about certain students.
School of America in Paris, Anna and the French Kiss and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
This one is a no brainer- I mean, a boarding school for international teenagers in the heart of Paris? What more could one possibly ask for?
Honorable Mention: Anglionby Academy, The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
Although Anglionby is an all boys school, the amazing academics make a strong case for attending.
And if you were looking to Hogwarts, I’m sorry to disappoint. It’s in a class by itself.
