The Mahora Academy is an academy located in northern Tokyo of Japan. The academy serves as the primary location where the Negima! Magister Negi Magi series occurs.

The school was funded by a European during the Meiji era of Japan (1868 - 1912)

At present 30,000 students earn their education at Mahora, ranging from grade school to university. The academy grounds, which is large enough to be considered its own city district, serves as the headquarters for the Kanto Magic Association.
