As a kid, I remember reading a series of Goosebumps-like books. They were all written by the same author, I think, and there were a half-dozen or so that I (vaguely) remember. The stories all centered around kids attending the...something Academy (my memory wants to say that it sounded something like 'Chaleen,' but that could be way off).

I recall one book about a mummy on the grounds. I think there was a vampire installment as well.

It's not much to go on, but if it rings a bell in your head, please let me know! Thanks!

    It couldn't possibly be the 'Bailey School Kids' series, could it? I realize this doesn't feature an 'Academy', but it is a goosebumps-like series with over 80 books (first book released in 1991), all based around the Bailey school, and the series included a possible mummy as a softball coach and at least twice featured a vampire as the monster of the week. – Ananisapta Jan 20 '14 at 13:50

Could you be thinking of the "Nightmare Hall" series, by Diane Hoh? It focuses on a number of students attending Salem University. These were published in the early to mid-1990s.

Here is a link to all of the books, with cover images and plot summaries: http://www.goodreads.com/series/49955-nightmare-hall

This was a spin-off of the Point Horror series, started by R. L. Stine.

If this is the series you are thinking of, the "mummy on the loose" book is, I believe, Student Body. enter image description here

  • Nope. Thanks though! – JohnDoe Feb 16 '14 at 16:56

I don't suppose it could be this?

Dragon Slayer's Academy: The New Kid At School


It sounds like the Terror Academy books by Nicolas Pine. There were 15 of them, each featuring a different teenager. You can read the synopsis for all 15 here: http://www.scaryforkids.com/terror-academy/


Phantom Valley books take place at Chilleen Academy.

    Can you expand on this at all? Any details about the books you can add in? – Jason Baker Sep 19 '15 at 18:16
