We’re running many different kinds of events this year–New World Magischola (NWM) 9, NWM 10, Magischola Prep (for young wizards, grades 6-12), Inside Avernus (larp in the infamous wizard prison) and Yuletide. New players are welcome at all events, whether or not they have played before! Magischola has plenty of room for transfer students and mid-year arrivals, after all.
All these wonderful experiences take place in the same fictional world – the Magimundi. Read more about the world by following the links on top of this page.
New World Magicshola 9 (Sold out!)
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. Read more about the NWM9 Schedule here.
Tickets are $595.

New World Magicshola 10
Graduation time! It’s time for the chaos and drama of the end-of-the-year, 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 their new House, and wonder if their major is the right one. 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. You do not need to have attended NWM9 (or any previous Magischola event) to attend NWM10.
- NWM 10:
June 28-July 1, 2018, Mount Holyoke College, MA, USA. (Age limit: 18 and above)
At our week-long youth program, middle and high schoolers (age 11-17) 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 are $1250 and are available now.
- Magischola Prep (Grades 6-12)
July 22-28, 2018, Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA. (Age limit: 11-17)
Step inside the Magical Prison of Avernus! What did you do to end up here? What will you do… to get out? The underground Avernus is Magimundi’s highest security prison. This for-profit prison is owned and operated by Hudson Unlimited, and has been keeping the North American Magical Universe safe and secure for nearly 200 years. Tickets start from $395, and are available now.

You’ll play students and faculty of New World Magischola, embarking on the annual Yuletide Retreat, a trip to a remote Manor in Mishipeshu, on the shores of a glacial lake at the center of the Mermaid Conflict. This year, there are more problems on site. Can students and guests solve the mysteries, and survive the weekend? Is there enough cocoa, s’mores, feasting and dancing to keep everyone occupied? Tickets start from $395, and are available now.
