Uagadou2If you've ever read the Harry Potter Series and were not from the United Kingdom, you probably wondered where witches and wizards around the world went to school. We know there are magical folk around the world because of the Quidditch World Cup, and we know of 2 other schools (Beauxbatons and Durmstrang) because of the TriWizard Tournament, but what about wizards in North America, South America, Africa, or Asia? Where do they all go for their magical education? Wonder no more- J.K. Rowling announced the names of more four wizarding schools. The brief description of each sounds fascinating, and we hope one day we'll get some books or short stories centered around these different locations.

North America: Ilvermorny

Rowling has revealed the least about this school, which looks like it's located in either New England or Canada. More information is to come from Rowling via Pottermore, and we'll probably learn more about this school in the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

South America: Castelobruxo

Castelobruxo is located in a Brazilian rainforest and is guarded by small, furry, and nocturnal spirit beings named Caipora.  These students are particularly adept at Herbology and Magizoology. 

Asia: Mahoutokoro

Japanese witches and wizards attend Mahoutokoro, where they don enchanted robes that change color as their magical knowledge improves. It's located on the island of Minami Iwo Jima. 

Africa: Uagadou

If you're a witch or wizard in Africa, you attend Uagadou, which gives its address as "Mountains of the Moon", but Rowling has said that it's located somewhere in Uganda. Many of the wizards and witches here do not use wands.

Rowling has said that there are 11 major wizarding schools around the world, so that means that there are four more schools we still haven't heard about yet. Rowling releases all her new information through her website Pottermore.
