This article is about the main function of Jedi Academies. You may be looking for the video game with the same name.

Jedi academies were established to train Force-sensitive beings accepted into the Jedi Order in the ways of the Force.

The practices of each academy varied, but in general a group of Jedi Masters would instruct younglings, Padawans and the occasional older beings, and each had a Headmaster. Most of the Jedi academies were created before the centralization of the Jedi Order and thus were established on far-flung worlds, usually centered around those with ties to the Force, laden with unique crystals for lightsaber creation, or near a threat that needed a watchful eye—the Almas Academy is exemplary of all of these reasons for its choice of location. The spacefaring academy Chu'unthor was created to help breach the geographic limitations of the Jedi academies. By the fall of the Galactic Republic, most early Jedi training took place in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant under the close observation of the Jedi Council.
