We’re running three different kinds of events this summer–First Semester, Second Semester, and Magischola Prep (for young wizards, grades 6-12). New players are welcome at all events, whether or not they played in a First Semester run in 2016! Magischola has plenty of room for transfer students and mid-year arrivals, after all.

First Semester (NWM7)

It’s the start of the school year and a new group of first year students need to be drafted into their New World Magischola Houses: Calisaylá, Croatan, DuBois, Laveau and Obeah. Everyone has new course schedules and is eager to meet the new faculty and Chancellor, as well as to see what this year of wizard college entails. This is a full four day NWM event taught as magical college, with robes, ties, and the house sorting ceremony for first years. The event culminates with the Welcome Ball, where all students and faculty come regaled in their finery and see take part in this long-standing tradition. Tickets start from $575, and will be on sale March 1st.

Second Semester (NWM5, NWM6, NWM8)

The school year continues! It’s time for the chaos and drama of testing season, as third years confront their oral exams and first and second years try to survive field exams. Choices and questions loom large as the future arrives. Third years prepare for their graduation and everything that comes after. Second years jockey for power–who will rise to take on the mantle of House President? Who will take over a club, or become a TA? First years settle into the routine of life in their new House, and explore what it means to them, just in time to say their goodbyes for the summer. This is the full four day wizard college experience, with classes, exams, and graduation ceremonies! The weekend culminates in the Finale Formal for all students–one last chance for drama, deals, and romance. Tickets start from $575, and will be on sale March 1st.

Magischola Prep

At our week-long youth program, middle and high schoolers from across the continent will come together and play out a week in the life of a group of young mages. It’s like living out a movie where you’re the main character, and your storyline is up to you! You’ll get an acceptance letter and report to campus for sorting and orientation. Once there, you’ll get a character to play–a student from one of the five North American wizard schools we’ve designed, who you’ll play for the rest of the week. Along with 150 other campers, you’ll help turn the beautiful campus of Swarthmore College into a school of magic for a week. Tickets start from $1100, and are available now.
