The First Generation Edit
After the JLA was founded in 2004, Robin and Batgirl were a bit miffed that they couldn't join due to their age, so Bruce Wayne pocketed up some money to build a "clubhouse"/training center for them, that also gave Beast Boy and Victor Stone (who had just become Cyborg) a place to crash. Raven showed up soon thereafter, needing friends and heroes to ally with to stop her father. Within the first year, Starfire also joined.
Batgirl was shot that summer and went into a coma, so Robin became part-time about the same time Terra showed up. The team finally broke up after Terra's death. But some members of the JLA still believed in the program, so Oliver Queen partnered with Bruce to sponsor an expansion for the next generation.
The Brat Pack Edit
Who were the "Brat Pack"? That's the nickname given to Titans of the second generation who had the sponsoring of an already established mentor. Originally, this included Superman's cousin Kara Zor-El (aka: Karen Kent, aka: Supergirl), Batman's adopted son Jason Todd (aka: Robin) and his friend Helena Bertinelli (aka: Batgirl), Green Arrow's adopted son Roy Harper (aka: Speedy), Icon's protege Raquel Ervin (aka: Rocket), and Wonder Woman's sister Donna Troy (aka: Wonder Girl); but the term was also later applied to Aquaman's two proteges Aqualad and Aquagirl (Garth & Tula) and Green Arrow's younger sister Thea Queen (Arrowette).
The Titans of the second generation came together after the first team disbanded because of Terra's death. Bruce Wayne and Oliver Queen believed in the Titans program, but did not have the time to fully develop it so they agreed to allow a new group of sidekicks to start their own program, trying to pick up the pieces of the last group. Right off the bat, the Brat Pack was born as Karen, Jason, Helena, Roy, Raquel, and Donna were the first ones to move into the Tower, joining Beast Boy and Raven who still lived there after the previous generation had disband. Right off the bat, they decided to hold try outs. The last group of Titans had limited their ranks to six, but only because they sort of assumed the Justice League needed to place new members into the program. As befitting their personalities, the Brat Pack did not ask the League for permission and just set out to do their own thing.
After tryouts, they had three new members: Rose Wilson, Blue Beetle, and Booster Gold. There were a few other wannabes that gave it a shot, but even the Brat Pack didn't feel comfortable with letting this sort join something which could actually get them killed. It was shortly after this that a noticeable clique formed within the ranks and Blue Beetle was the one who first coined the term "Brat Pack" after he noticed the trend of when something went wrong he and Booster got scolded harsher than the others or it was assumed they had been responsible (which may have been true most of the time, but not always). While Rose never let scolding bother her, Booster and Beetle decided to get their own mentor... and so in their off-time, they began schmoozing up different Justice Leaguers. Booster really wanted to be a Green Lantern while Beetle hoped Batman was interested in having some more proteges. In the end, they moved to Hub City and shadowed the Question and while he may have taught them some valuable lessons, they were a bit disappointed to find out he had no interest in coming to their defense when it was disciplinary hearing time.
The clique was pretty much restricted to that sense. Beetle and Booster were not shunned by any means and got up to just as much mischief (or more) than the others. Some of the notable antics that the Gen-2 Titans were known for included Roy and Jason breaking into the Hall of Justice to street race the back-up Arrow Rod and Batmobile through Washington DC, the boys sneaking into the girls' locker room and Karen retaliating by X-Ray visioning her male classmates and telling gal pals in the Titans who was the "least impressive", a Red Kryptonite influenced Karen making out with Donna while on a late night talk show, Beetle and Booster doing a bunch of commercial advertisements, Booster selling space on his uniform, Rose had a number of arrests for underage drinking or public indecency, and Helena and Raquel had habit of flipping off papparazzi or news cameras in addition to having quite the potty mouth on live TV on many occasions.
Beast Boy and Raven were mostly not part of any major scandals themselves, caught up in their own teen romance at the time, but they were part of many group activities like some wild parties that the Titans hosted in the Tower, some racy social media photos, and the media had a field day when it was rumored that Raven had led the team into hell.
Eventually, as the ranks grew to include the Aquakids, Hawks, and so forth, the Titans bonded more as a whole, but the Brat Pack term stuck around as a shorthand reference to those with mentors.
When the Hawks joined up, they reined in the team at first, but even their immortal souls gave way to teenage hormones and they had a number of scandals, usually involving the two expressing their eternal love for one another at inappropriate times. Thea had a notorious drug problem in her personal life and it threatened her dual identity many times when Arrowette was photographed swiping drugs off dealers she had just caught or getting high in a back alley while in costume. And of course, the Atlanteans were no exception to scandal. Tula and Garth were both photographed skinny-dipping (though they both claimed they were bathing in the Atlantean fashion) and they were known for making derogatory remarks toward "surfacers" and having controversial (some say barbaric) political opinions.
As a whole, the Titans of this generation were media superstars and were adored by teenagers and young adults while lawmakers called them bad role models and comedians made them the butt of jokes. Reacting to this, the Justice League decided that the Titans needed more chaperones and so the practice started of a Justice Leaguer pulling Tower duty started, in addition to the already established regular chaperone Red Tornado (whose behavior was also seemingly affected by the Titans who taught the digital lifeform some interesting new personality quirks that the League did not find amusing).
Eventually, Cyborg decided that the Justice League wasn't the right fit for him and he went back to spending most of his time at Titans Tower and so the Justice League decided to appoint Victor Stone as headmaster of the Titans program. At first, Vic just wanted to be one of the Titans himself, but he realized that these kids needed a leader. Clashing with his authority, Jason spent less time at the Tower and more time in Gotham, causing him to take on his private investigation without assistance... and ultimately he paid the price.
With the death of Jason Todd, the Brat Pack dissolved within months. Only Raquel remained from the original members of the clique to finish out the program.
But Jason didn't stay dead and though he is different and changed, the Brat Pack followed Jason's example and sprung back to life. The Brat Pack and the Gen-2 Titans as a whole have a seasonally held tradition of getting together for a wild party. These parties used to be held on the rooftop of Titans Tower, but Victor Stone put an end to that, so now they meet at Ted or Karen's penthouse, crash the Fortress of Solitude, or even once had a week long camping trip in a remote part of the wilderness areas of Themyscira. Recently, they have taken to recapturing the recklessness of their youth with these parties and favor the idea of holding them somewhere they shouldn't. Rumor is their next party might be in the Watchtower itself.
The Team Titans Edit
In 2009, when the Justice League was reorganized under A.R.G.U.S. and the U.N., Titans Tower was reopened with Cyborg as headmaster and his "Team" as the new generation of Titans. With other members joining afterwards.
Titan Academy Edit
After the Fall of 2013, Titans Tower became more like a proper school, with Cyborg remaining as the headmaster and Red Tornado, Raven, Beast Boy, Proxy, and Paragon returning to the Tower as resident mentors for the next generation, and other members of the Justice League teaching classes here and there to further the young heroes' skill sets. 
The roles of each student varies with the Titan. Cyborg gives them different grades according to their capability.
- Freshmen do Tower training only.
- Sophomores are allowed to go into the field with a mentor, but the field work is usually just elaborate training or street level patrols.
- Junior Titans can go into the field with each other on patrols but for critical missions should be accompanied by at least one mentor.
- Senior Titans are expected to help train the Freshmen and Sophomores and are usually tasked with leading Juniors on patrol. A senior can also go on patrol solo or with a partner.
Of course, there is a lit of precedence for defying the rules. Discipline is levies for offenses but no one is ever kicked out of the program (as that's just grounds for making a villain).
Each class has a floor and a mentor assigned to them:
- First Year/Second Floor: Beast Boy
- Second Year/Third Floor: Paragon
- Third Year/Fourth Year: Proxy
- Fourth Year/Fifth Year: Raven
- Fifth Year/Sixth Floor: Red Tornado
- Graduates/Alumni/Staff/Seventh Floor: Cyborg
The curriculum changes frequently. Typically, there's a mix of full-time and part-time students. So... for the full-timers there's the basics like math, life science, physical science, social science, history, and the like during weekday daytime hours. For the part-timers, there's evening, weekend, and summer classes with a more heroic slant: hand-to-hand combat, parkour, training with gadgets, driving, piloting, et cetera.
The basics are usually taught by mentors while the others are typically taught by the Justice League and those typically rotate instructors. So, one weekend, Batman might teach a forensics class and the next weekend, it'll be Elastic Man.
The Justice League members usually teach more hands-on stuff. Things that can be taught piece-meal, in a contained session or over the course of a few sessions. So Batman might teach how to run a DNA test, the way he would do it. Next time that's taught, it may be Flash teaching the class and he'll teach they way he does it. That way Batman doesn't have to commit himself to teaching a course on forensics every Saturday morning for nine months.
