Name: Mille-feuille Academy
Location: Essex county, England
Students: Years 1-5, co-ed
- Mille-feuille Academy was originally an all-ladies' finishing school when it opened in 1845 in England. It had only two floors, and since then has expanded into a towering seven-floor building. The Academy evolved from a finishing school to a girl's boarding school in the late 1890's, and included subjects like English, science and history into its curriculum, for until then the school focused primarily on domestic studies.
The school became co-ed in 1952, which led to building new dorms for boys and expanding the grounds to include the lake, where boys where taught sailing. Girls were able to take the same classes that boys could.
Later in the century, boys and girls could attend Mille-feuille Academy without needing money or scholarships. It became an educationally equal school for girls and boys. Many classes like ballroom dancing and etiquette were required now for all students, as well as core study classes.
Perhaps it was the old, Victorian feel of the place, nestled deep into woods miles away from any towns, with greenhouses and full gardens, that made Lolitas flock to the Academy. Whatever the reason, everyone in the school is part of one Japanese street fashion or another.
The school is divided by grades, or years. Mille-feuille is an academy that begins after children finish middle school. However, because it can be considered a university prep school, it goes on longer by a year than most four year high schools would. The years and corresponding ages are:
First Year: 15
Second Year: 16
Third Year: 17
Fourth Year: 18
Fifth Year: 19
The teal deer says that the boarding school is full of interesting surprises for any student who enrolls!
