Starfleet Academy is an institution for learning, specifically to train cadets to be future Starfleet officers.

Traditionally, when a person who wishes to join reaches the age of adult, they submit an application and undergo a series of tests to see if they'll get accepted. Once accepted, they train at one of the facilities, such as the primary one on Earth in the city of San Francisco for four years.

The Academy's motto is "Ex Astris, Scientia", or "From the Stars, Knowledge." (TNG novel: The First Duty; TOS movies: Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

The facilities include holodecks, located on Archer Hall. (SNW short story: "Best Tools Available")

The entrance exam's final question was worth fifty points. (DS9 novel: The Long Night) All cadets were also required to study the worlds that had been destroyed by their dominant species through wars and environmental mismanagement. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)

Academy preparatory schools

At least in North America, there was one Academy Institute in each state or province. (VOY novel: Mosaic)

The Academy Institutes may have been similar to elementary and secondary schools that were military academies in the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Starfleet Academy Preparatory Program (DS9: "Facets") may have been waived for Academy cadet-aspirants who attended an Academy Institute.


Every cadet also had to undergo a physical recruit training which involved obstacle course training. (Dragon Ball Z vs. Star Trek: The Way of Infinity)

Cadets on the command-track were given the infamous Kobayashi Maru scenario to test how they would handle a no-win situation.
