The Charmbridge Academy is one of the premier schools of magic in the United States. The current Dean of the Academy is Lilith Grimm. The Academy provides a magical education for grades six through twelve, with students boarding at the school throughout the academic year, and is coeducational. The campus resides on the far side of a wide half-mile deep valley, which is crossable by way of an Invisible Bridge, a span reinforced with stabilization and windbreaker charms.

The main building is a large brick structure roughly three stories tall, with an ivy-covered arch and a large set of stone steps. The building stands at the center of a nicely manicured lawn of at least twenty acres, surrounded by grass, sandlots, and athletic fields. The lawn is surrounded on all sides by woods where a wild boggart lives and where, students convince each other, a hodag roams. The building itself is heptagonal, with a courtyard in the center. Many of the rooms are enchanted with extension charms, making the interior space significantly larger than the external dimensions.

The site for the campus was chosen because of a subterranean chamber that leads to the Lands Below, which was used by native tribal practitioners of magic before European wizard arrived on the continent. Until recently, the school only admitted pure-blooded witches and wizards.

The Academy takes part in the Magical Academy Student Exchange Program; during the 2008-2009 schoolyear, six students from the Blacksburg Magery Institute spent the year at Charmbridge. Charmbridge's school Quidditch team won the Central Territory championship for four consecutive years from 2005 to 2008, and last won the Confederation Cup in 1999. The official student newspaper of the school is the Charmbridge Cheerer.
