International Academy of Magic, also known as IAM or International Academy of Mastery is a school for Witches and Wizards from across the nation to learn the many branches of magic and the techniques to master their skillful use. A number of alumnae each year return as Professors with a few even becoming Head Masters/Mistresses.
The school is considered Canadian-American, it is located just over the USA border from North Dakota along the Red River Valley. The land is unplottable, ancient magic has been placed on it by the founders, the former and recent staff members, and former students to keep it protected. The property to outsiders resembles a grain farm, to the people who have lived and worked or ever visited the school, it can be seen as it looks.
