Design a School

"The fictional school I would like to attend is not a school as such; it is a castle, a cottage, a forest. Merlyn, alongside Wart, the boy who will become King Arthur. I want to fly as a hawk, to swim and a perch, to learn all that is magic and noble from the man who has seen the future because she is living life backwards." - Bruce Degen, illustrator, The Magic School Bus.

In the September 2016 issue of, The Atlantic, the last page asks The Big Question. September's question is, What Fictional School Would You Most Like to Attend?

Several responses included: The Breakfast Club's Shermer high school,  Xavier's School for Gifted  Youngsters, The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and Welton Academy from "The Dead Poet's Society."

The final response included the best party college, Farber College from "Animal House."

If you designed a creative academy that taught the hidden powers of the universe, which professors would you select?  What would they teach?  Describe the admission requirements for students.

Describe the location - an island, forest, mountain top, jungle, or?

Add details and weave in a bit of magic.
