Top ten sci-fi & fantasy schools

At the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog, Meghan Ball tagged ten top fictional educational institutions from SFF books, including:
Ladies of Quality (The Finishing School series, by Gail Carriger)

Forget magic, how does training to be an assassin sound? Enroll yourself in this fantastical academy with a killer curriculum. Attend classes in a schoolroom that floats over Scotland in a dirigible and learn everything you need to make a lethal move into high society. Vampires, werewolves, and the proper use of fans are of considerable interest to every young lady of a certain means and murderous intent. Gail Carriger’s hilarious, witty steampunk comedy of manners is a prequel to her lovely Parasol Protectorate series. Each book is full to the brim with charm, humor, and turns of phrase sharp enough to cut—important skills for any assassin-in-training.
