    Hogwarts has a proud and illustrious history, being the place of study of many of the greatest wizards in history and indeed of our time. Over a thousand years ago, the four greatest witches and wizards of the age shared a dream, to create a school where young people of the wizarding world could study and be trained in the magical arts they needed to become skilled, fully-trained wizards. These four great wizards each founded one of the Houses of the school that they worked to-gether to form. They have been referred to as 'The Hogwarts Four.'

    Hogwarts: A History

  • Quidditch SlytherinHogwarts Housesand the Gryffindor

    Hufflepuff Ravenclaw

    The Slytherin house was founded by Salazar Slytherin. Salazar was known to be a gifted parseltounge, and shrewd to boot. Salazar believed that the pupils most fit to train at Hog-warts were the wizards and witches of pure magi-cal ancestry. Chances are this might describe your ancestry if you were sorted into Slytherin, but you most likely also possess one of the many other qualities that are common in Slytherins: a shrewd, cunning, and ambitious nature, as well as the potential to be great! The cunning of the Slytherins is represented in the house animal; the snake, and the colors are green and silver.

    The Gryffindor house, founded by Godric Gryffindor, prizes loyalty to friends above all else. Godric Gryffindor firmly believed that those who forged great relationships with their friends would be the most successful in life. Gryffindors these days have been known to be a warm and friendly, yet fiery and passionate bunch, follow-ing in their founders footsteps. The house animal, the lion, accurately represents their nature and the house colors of red and gold reflect their sometimes fiery passion when it comes to protecting their friends and family.

    Quidditch, "the sport of war-locks," is the premier sport of the wizarding world and a loved pastime here at Hogwarts. As a first year, you will be given the opportunity to learn to use a broomstick in basic flying with Madame Hooch. After completing such, you are welcome to try out for one of the house quidditch teams. Each year the houses compete fiercely with each other to win the coveted Quid-ditch cup! If you wish to try out for such team, contact Madame Hooch or talk to your houses team captain for try out

    The Hufflepuff House is known to be the most kind and caring house, but they are also the hardest working. The Hogwarts founder Helga Hufflepuff felt that hard workers were the most deserving of an education. Hufflepuffs today live up to that legacy, as they never hesitate to dive right into their studies. Above that, Huf-flepuffs also have a strong sense of justice, and a no nonsense attitude. Their down-to-earth attitude and warm nature is reflected in their house animal, the badger, and their colors, yellow and black.

    Rowena Ravenclaw was the cleverest of the Hogwarts four, and thus prized cleverness. Because of this, the Ravenclaw house is full of the some brightest, and most naturally talented young witches and wizards available. Along with being the cleverest, Ravenclaws have also been known to march to the beat of a different drum-mer, having known to be a bit eccentric. How-ever, craziness is a sign of genius, and Ravenclaws are unabashed of their off-the-beaten-path ways. They fly above the rest, making their house animal the raven, and colors blue and bronze.
