Rowling released all sorts of information on the North American Harry Potter-verse, including the story of the American Hogwarts, called Ilvermorny , and an Ilvermorny Sorting Quiz , which sorts people into brand new Houses. No doubt people are wondering as they take this quiz which Ilvermorny Houses match with Hogwarts Houses , but before we get into that, you should make sure you're up to speed with how Ilvermorny came to be in the first place. Throughout her journey she encounters many magical creatures, Muggles, and other witches and wizards, embarking on romance and adventure and fleeing the spite of her abusive, powerful aunt, a pureblood with elitist views.

Unlike the Hogwarts Houses, the Ilvermorny Houses do not have nearly as distinct divisions in terms of personality or skills; in fact, many students in Ilvermorny are chosen for more than one House, and ultimately are tasked with making the decision themselves. That being said, you don't have to squint very hard to find clear parallels between the Ilvermorny Houses and the Hogwarts Houses, even based on the very little information on Ilvermony Sorting that we have.
