Welcome to Millennium Academy, the city’s top school for young meta-humans hoping to one day become heroes. The class doesn’t only provide hero courses, but it also provides general studies, technology programs, and business courses. Like many boarding schools. Millennium Academy applies Harkness Education to most classes, a system that encourages students to think for themselves with minimal teacher intervention. Regular lectures are sometimes held, but mostly discouraged as the Harkness system allows students to solve problem without assistance like they would usually be required to in the hero field.
The official school colors are burgundy and navy blue, but black, grey, white are acceptable inside school grounds. Students are not required to wear ties since 2011. Jeans are allowed, but only if they are navy or black. The most maximum of roommates a student can have is two. Dorms are NOT co-ed and if a male student is found in a female dorm then they will suffer the repercussions.
Millennium Academy is highly selective with non-residential students, with only about 19% acceptance rates.Hence why a lot of parents choose to move within city limits so their super-powered children can attend the school. Funding comes from the government, advertisement from events such as the Academy Crossover and Ring Out, and from donations by several corporations like Novak Systems, Kunta Prosthetics, Winchester Industries and other wealthy alumni. In return they receive tax cut off from the government as a return for funding such an expensive facility.
The preparatory school was funded in the 1960s. After the first Loxosceles entered the public eye, it became a concern that teenagers were gaining superpowers and acting recklessly. In response to the turmoil. the local government created the first facility to teach future generations about the responsibilities that came with their powers.
The Hero Course is the academy’s best known program and the hardest one to get into. The infamous practical exam has been criticized for placing students in dangerous situations, despite the staff asserting that the students were not in danger. Students that are accepted into the hero course will be put through thorough training exercises to push their super-abilities to the limit. Classes in the morning are general courses and in the afternoon students embark on non-conventional training exercises. These activities can range from hostage rescues to simply hearing a lecture from a guest hero.
The General Course is similar to Hero Course in the morning, except core classes extend towards the afternoon. Students also have the ability to pick more electives unlike their course counterparts. Their access to the Novak Gymnasium is typically restricted. Students in the General Course have an 30% of being accepted into ivy league colleges and an 70% of being accepted by state colleges.
The Technology Program focuses on cultivating the student’s minds rather than their powers. Hour long brainstorming sessions are held early in the morning. After lunch students get to choose between taking a power nap or taking a yoga class. This apparent laxness of the course serves a cooldown for student partaking in the course. Students participating in the program are put through some of the most mentally taxing courses and mental challenges. Students entering the program aim to start their own start up companies or sell their inventions to larger corporations in order to fund their own crime fighting operations.
The Eisner Hall houses the English, Modern, and Extraterrestrial languages departments. On the first floor is the Elite Room, where faculty members meet for lunch breaks and meetings. The classrooms were designed in an oval position with the Harkness method in mind. The hall is in the same building as the Kirby Library, which has a shelf capacity of 200,00 volumes, but only holds 152,000 volumes in STEAM advanced subjects to nurture the minds of tomorrow’s brightest generation.
Hickman Science Center is home to the laboratories and classrooms for most of the students in the technology program. An electron microscope was donated back in 2006 by Novak Systems. The microscope is currently underground with magnetic canceling systems. The laboratories hold different types of advanced technology. The most notable being the C.L.A.W artificial intelligence, providing students with the materials required to construct their gadgets and simulations.
Spiegelman Theater houses the Drama Department, the Shakespeare Association, and the Dramatic Honors Society (DHS) It includes a 100 seat blackbox theater and a 200 seat main stage theater. Students from the DHS have a chance to submit their originals plays into the Drama Department which could lead them to being produced by the school. Plays such as Frankie, Floods of Watergate, and Heart of Vietnam were written, acted, and directed by students in the past.
Way Music Center was designed and built five years after the school was inaugurated. The center contains the Music Department, the Music Library, and two different rehearsal halls, and dozen rehearsal halls.
The Ditko Art Center is home to the Art Department, the Barren Painters Society, the Graphics Guild and other clubs. The Department’s Head’s superpower is being able to bring the paintings to life and to travel inside the art. Once a year, he takes select students inside the paintings with him. The center contains a ceramics studio with approximately fifteen wheels, one printmaking studio, an architectural and 3D design studio in the second floor, and painting studios. A 3D printer was added in 2014, but use is under restriction for students.
The Kingsley Novak Gymnasium was named after the 1950s arms manufacturer after he donated a large sum of capital to the academy. The gymnasium has evolved through the ages, originally simply holding regular weights training room, one swimming pool, and two hockey rinks. The gymnasium now has gravity manipulated weights and rooms to challenge even 100+ tonners, treadmills that can sustain the friction from speedsters, and the pool has extended over the two hockey rinks for aquatic powers.
The Palahniuk Cage was originally a open field where meta-humans could spar against each other under staff supervision. Now, a stadium was built with several dummy enemies for students to practice on. Sparring is still common, but greatly regulated by staff to ensure the student’s safety. The final rounds of the Millennium Crossover are typically held here, where students face against each other in one on one matches. Forcefields are implemented around the stands to prevent debris from hitting the crowd watching the fights.
Haney Grounds is a large facility that holds different dangerous environmental situations where heroes have to adapt to save the test dummies in peril. The first one is a boat in the middle of a flooded area with technosharks, a giant robot squid, and mermen. The second room is a closed off location with fires constantly raging inside inflammable buildings. The third area is a snow storm that make mobility almost impossible. The fourth area is the ruins zone with the test dummies trapped beneath the rubble. The fifth and final area simulates a mountain area like the Grand Canyon, with high cliffs and rocks.
Takami Dome is a mile away from city limits. The first two rounds of challenges in the Academy’s Tournaments have been held inside the feared dome in occasion. Though it is infamous for being known as the place where Millennium Academy Ring Out is held. The Dome itself is composed of multiple empty buildings with a high tech dome covering it. Sometimes the place used for training exercises between classes to run different scenarios.
Millar Gymnasium is the training facility for non-enhanced beings. The gym contains several standard weights, treadmills, pull up bars. It has three 50 meter pools and five tennis courts. Two hockey rinks. Squash facilities, a gymnastics space, a wrestling room, a calisthenics yard, and a 400 meter track outside. Two basketball courts and a soccer field.
The Millennium Academy Crossover is hosted every year the week after the homecoming dance. The first two rounds are a set of challenges that change year to year, before the final challenge which is one on one combat with other students. The winner receives a gold medal and recognition as the event is heavily televised. Members of the Academy’s technology program are allowed to bring their gadgets for competitions with the condition that they designed the gadgets themselves.
Homecoming is held to welcome back returning and new alumni. Held in the Palahniuk Cage, the dance is packed with food and music. A ballot is given out to each homeroom class to decide each year’s theme. Ticket prices are only $80. Those caught with alcohol and/or other illicit substances are punished.
The Millennium Academy Ring Out is the most controversial event held towards the end of the year. Participants have to knock their opponents unconscious or incapacitate them. Excessive force is illegal and results in disqualifications. The Game Moderators have access to drop care packages, weaponry, and unleash multiple sort of machinations against the participants.

If you want to become a teacher or a student please PM either this account and @_reynard_
However, I would prefer if most people were students as they would have a more active role with interactions.
If you want to be Freshman or new to the school, I will be dropping the "Entrance Exam" within the next 24 hours.
Otherwise you can be a pre-established student.
If you want to attack PM this account and Reynard.
Property damage caused by students will have precautions.
