I have some very good news for all of you Harry Potter fans out there…and let’s face it – who isn’t a Harry Potter fan? If you thought your adventure with Hogwarts was all over when you finished reading Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows for the seventh time or when you got back into your car after visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there is hope on the horizon for you.
If you’ve read the books, (and most of us have read the books…once or twice) than you know how easy it was to place yourself alongside Harry and Co. A testament to the prose skills of J.K. Rowling, it didn’t take many pages at all before you actually felt like you were sitting in class with Hermione, or soaring over the Quidditch field with Harry and the rest of the Gryffindor team. In short, we all felt like we were vicariously studying at Hogwarts as well. Well now, fans don’t have to live through Harry and his friends any longer, because they can enroll themselves into online classes at Hogwarts this very moment.

Whoever is behind this website (it’s not J.K. Rowling or Warner Bros.) has done an amazing job of making Hogwarts look like a “real” online school. After you answer a few questions you get an official letter of acceptance signed by Professor McGonagall herself. Who wouldn’t want to frame that and put it on their wall?
Probably a disappointment to some, there is no sorting hat – you have to choose which house you want to belong to. And after you do that, you can sign up for your first year of classes. Here’s the neat part – your classes actually have assignments (essays) you have to complete which will be graded by someone and sent back to you.
While students won’t actually get to board the Hogwarts Express, this is just about the closest you can get to actually living out the books.
