--- FRIDAY AT WIZARDING WEEKEND ---
Returning students take their seats at house tables in the great hall and await the entrance of anxious 1st years for the Worthwich sorting ceremony to begin. 1st-year students are sorted into one of four Worthwich Houses - Sakurai, Wyverno, Qlantis, and Zarraqa.
After the sorting ceremony students meet their head of house and enjoy an opening night feast, prepared by professional chefs.
After dinner students settle into their accommodations and enjoy a special welcome package from Worthwich waiting for them in their house lodge.
To close out the Friday festivities Worthwich will host an opening night social, where students can mix and mingle with their heads of house, fellow students, and professors while enjoying delicious brews, homemade trolley treats, and wizarding themed music.
--- SATURDAY/SUNDAY AT WIZARDING WEEKEND ---
Worthwich is a serious institute for magical learning. Students are enrolled in a full schedule of magical courses based on their year in school at Worthwich.
Students attend professionally taught magical classes all day Saturday and Sunday including:
In the evenings after dinner, students decompress around the campfire listening to professors tell tales that ought not to be told and stargaze under the deep black Texas skies while enjoying freshly brewed potions served in cauldron cups.
Students can also enjoy nightly screenings of wizarding themed movies with homemade trolley treats (pumpkin pasties, cauldron cakes, licorice wands, oddly flavored beans).
Classes conclude before dinner on Sunday.
At the closing night feast, Headmaister Maiko awards the Worthwich House Cup to the house with the highest accumulated points for the semester.
Students can earn points by actively participating in classes, showing house pride, and helping others. Points may also be taken away for rule breaking, skipping classes, or engaging in mischief and pranks around the school grounds. In severe cases of misconduct, students may be given detention.

Whenever possible our method of teaching is practical and hands-on. For example, students taking herbology will learn the magical and medicinal uses of REAL plants from central Texas.
Worthwich is a DREAM PROJECT for our group of dedicated professors. We are each highly passionate about our chosen subject and the fandom we share. We work year round to generate original and unique content for our students and bring it all together for 3 days and nights at Worthwich Wizarding Weekend. It truly is the most magical weekend of the year!
--- STUDENT LODGING ---
Student accommodations are co-ed. Each of the four Worthwich houses has its own lodge with the following features:
Groups of students attending wizarding weekend can request to be sorted into the same house so they can stay together.
--- FANTASTIC FEASTS ---
Feasts are all you can eat and include a variety of beverage options (bottled water, coffee, tea, juice, and soda).
Our chef can accommodate a range of dietary needs including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free.
*If you need a dietary accommodation please let us know as soon as you purchase your tickets so we have time to prepare our menu.
--- 5 YEARS OF WIZARDING EDUCATION ---
Students attending Worthwich for the first time can return four more years with new classes and content taught each year.
Advanced/Upper Level Classes include:
At the end of their 3rd year students take written exams and can choose to follow a mastery track.
Mastery Tracks include
Your mastery track determines which specialized classes you'll take in your 4th and 5th years.
After their 5th year of study at Worthwich students must pass a final practical exam in order to graduate. The practical is hosted separately from Wizarding Weekend and all students and professors are invited to attend. Final decision on passing will be made by Headmaister Maiko Mushanokoji, Heads of House, and Mastery Track advisors.
--- NEED TO ARRIVE LATE OR LEAVE EARLY? ---
Activities on Friday Nov 2nd include: school tours, real wood wand making class, the sorting ceremony and opening night feast. Saturday and Sunday is when you'll take our full schedule of magical classes.
All classes conclude before dinner on Sunday. Students are HIGHLY encouraged to stay til dinner to see the awarding of the house cup. Lodging is INCLUDED for Sunday night for those who would like to stay, but we understand if you need to start heading home after dinner on Sunday.
All students will pack up and leave early Monday morning, no meals or classes take place on Monday.
--- ATTENDING AS A SOLO FLYER ---
One of the things our students enjoy most about wizarding weekend is the new friendships they form here.
You do everything together with your house and they truly become like your family. You will attend classes with your fellow housemates, sit at your house table for meals, and get to know them better in the evenings around the campfire.
Each of the four Worthwich houses has its own Facebook community (created by the students themselves) so they can stay in touch while not at school.
These bonds last. There is a true sense of community and belonging here.
House pride is strong and the choosing chalice on point.
--- SCHOOL GROUNDS AT PARRIE HAYNES RANCH ---
Worthwich is renting out the entire facility so our wizarding students and professors will be the only group on site for the whole weekend. We have also placed concealment and security charms around the property, just in case.
Parrie Haynes Ranch is located centrally in Texas
The location is remote with low light pollution and amazing nighttime views of the Texas skyline. Let go of your tech for a weekend (there's no cell signal, anyway) and get back to basics with us.
Roam around the school grounds by oil lamp light, write with quill and ink, and discover the magic of native Texas plants.
