Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies is an academy for young witches and a pivotal location in Coven.

Located in New Orleans, Louisiana, Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies is an academy of witchcraft where young witches are automatically enrolled once their powers have been uncovered. It is here that they are taught the history of their kind and how to discover and control their abilities.

The Academy was built in 1790 as a private school for privileged girls but was turned into a military hospital in the Civil War. In 1868, Marion Warton, The Supreme, the most powerful witch of the generation and a prominent socialite back then, reclaimed the building and reinstated it as a school as a cover-up, but in reality turned it into a safe haven for young witches to learn and hone their powers. Due to many women of the bloodline choosing not to reproduce, the population dwindled from at most 60 in the academy, to the present of just four girls.


  • In the cast promo one of the steps leading to the school reads: "From Education as the leading cause - The public character its color draws." This remains from the filming locations prior housing of Soule College.
  • The Academy's doorbell is also heard playing as the door chime for the Murder House in Season 1
  • The Academy's filming location is Buckner Mansion, at 1410 Jackson Avenue in New Orleans' Garden District. It was built in 1856 by Henry Sullivan Buckner and designed by architect Lewis E. Reynolds.
  • John Robichaux and his nephew Joe are New Orleans jazz musicians. These two links to Coven's themes (music and location) may indicate the inspiration for the school's name.
