A timeline of magical academies - 05

I started putting together this list while watching the third season of My Hero Academia, wondering at how often I've seen "Academy" styled fictional media, and then wondering how far back this trend went and what it looked like. The below list is the result of some light investigation.

In this case "magic" means anything which is not perfectly mundane, and so is inclusive of things like superheroes and sci-fi stories where the focus is on special young people doing special things.

Did I miss any?
