U.A. is the #1 ranked high school for heroics and is considered as the top Hero Academy in Japan. Students are separated based on their abilities into specific Departments and Classes - A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, and K.
U.A. was originally a day school, but it was later turned into a boarding school.
U.A. executes a six-day school week where the only day off is Sunday.
At the entrance, there is a security wall nicknamed the "U.A. Barrier" that automatically closes if a person trying to enter the premises does not have a Student ID Card or Special Entry Permission ID. Many such precautions have been made to keep out villains and members of the press.
The security system underwent major upgrades following Tomura Shigaraki's break in. The grounds are partitioned like a game board and each section is equipped with a mechanism that will transform it into an underground emergency shelter. Then those individual shelters enter a linear maglev network that can send them along any number of underground routes at the faculty's discretion. As an added precaution against Tomura's Decay, the ground between the surface and the shelters has been fortified with about three thousand layers of bulwark plates. Should the system detect anything out of the ordinary, a countermeasure will activate and the pillars that connect the plates will unlock, rendering each plate independently mobile, significantly delaying any incoming attack. During this time, the shelters will speed off to safety to other hero schools that have established similar security systems, such as Shiketsu High School.
Japanese, math, science and foreign languages, among other subjects, are all compulsory subjects. Students in every department study these core subjects and will change year by year.
Department of Heroes
Students learn everything they need to know to become excellent heroes in service of the community and work towards the qualifications necessary to be allowed to use their Quirks in public spaces. They are trained in battle, first aid and all manner of heroics-related lessons. Ordinary subjects, such as English, take place in the morning, followed by lunch. Then, in the afternoon, Heroics classes take place.
These students belong to Classes A and B.
Department of General Education
Students who don't make the cut for the hero department are included in this department. It boasts a top-notch education with an eclectic lineup of teachers. The department of general education supports students aiming for college and other pursuits. It is also possible for students with exceptional grades to be transferred to the hero department.
These students belong to Classes C, D, and E.
Department of Support
Students in this department focus on developing support equipment that help heroes out on the battlefield. With a workspace stocked to the brim with all sorts of executive tools, the department provides an unmatched creative environment.
These students belong to Classes F, G, and H.
Department of Management
This department focuses on all aspects of heroic business, from founding and managing hero agencies to executive producing heroes. They even do hands-on lessons in venture capitalism.
Theses students belong to Classes I, J, and K.
Students in the Hero Course have an additional Period (lasting from 15:20~16:10).
The lessons themselves depend on the department but the general daily schedule (for students not enrolled in the Hero Course) is as follows:
|Period||Start Time||End Time|
The U.A. High School student uniform consists of a long-sleeve, button-up white shirt, a gray jacket with blue-green stripes, and a red tie. The boys uniform includes dark blue-green pants while the girls uniform includes a dark blue-green pleated skirt.
Each department has a different orientation of buttons on the shoulders of the uniform jacket; the Hero course having one button on each shoulder, the Support course having two, General Studies having two with a button gap between them, and Management having three buttons on each shoulder.
The U.A. P.E. uniform is a pair of dark blue pants with white vertical lines going up the legs and a dark blue short sleeve shirt with white lines that form the letters 'U' and 'A'. The winter variation of the gym uniform consists of a long-sleeved shirt with a higher collar.
While U.A. students are required to wear this uniform, it seems the faculty is lax about enforcing students to wear the uniform properly; Katsuki Bakugo wears his uniform with the top buttons undone, no tie, and his pants sagging. Izuku Midoriya wears his tie not tied properly.
- U.A. (雄英 yūei?) is the inverted kanji for "hero" (英雄 eiyū?).
- The school's motto "Plus Ultra" is Latin for "further beyond" and is the national motto of Spain.
