Auradon Prep is an institution that appears in Descendants. It is where the descendants of Disney's most well-known Heroes and Villains attend.



The castle was built over three hundreds years before the Isle of the Lost kids arrived at Auradon. It just so happened to be Beast's old castle which was re purposed into a school when he became king. Fairy Godmother was appointed headmistress, following the opening of the school.
