The Jedi Academy is a training establishment in the fictional universe of Star Wars.

History in Star Wars

The Jedi Academy, also known as Praxeum, was first housed in the Great Massassi Temple and had 12 original students, including Kyle Katarn, Brakiss, Corran Horn, Dorsk 81, Gantoris, Kam Solusar, Kirana Ti, Streen, Tionne, and eventually Cilghal, Mara Jade and Kyp Durron. Cray Mingla and Nichos Mar may also have been two of the original students.

Use in story lines

In 11 ABY, Luke Skywalker began the reconstruction of the Jedi Order with Force-sensitive recruits he had encountered over the years since the defeat of the Galactic Empire at Endor. The New Republic gave him Yavin 4 to use as a training facility for his new Jedi apprentices.

Luke has been known to leave the Academy in times of crisis to help the New Republic, leaving it in the capable hands of Streen, and later Kam and Tionne Solusar.

One of the trials the Academy came up against, was when Desann planned to use an army of Reborn Jedi, and Shadowtroopers to invade the Academy and restore the Galactic Empire. Kyle Katarn was able to stop most of the invasion and slay Desann.

Years later, Tavion, apprentice of Desann, returned with a Sith Cult named the Disciples of Ragnos. The left over reborn from Desann's project joined Tavion's cult as the 'New Reborn'. Also, Tavion made her own troops using Force power from a sceptor belonging to Marka Ragnos, an ancient Sith Lord. A major battle between the cult and the Academy occurred at Korriban, where Ragnos had been buried. Tavion was trying to resurrect him. Fortunately, the Jedi stopped this from happening, and Tavion was killed by the spirit of Marka Ragnos when he possessed her to fight Jaden Korr.

When the Yuuzhan Vong attacked Yavin 4 and destroyed the Massassi Temple, Talon Karrde and Booster Terrik helped the few Jedi Knights and the many Jedi children escape their clutches, making the Errant Venture and then the Maw the home of the Jedi Academy.

Most of the Jedi in Luke's New Jedi Order have been trained at the Academy and learned at least somewhat directly from him. The Jedi Academy, wherever it is, tends to be a base of operations for the Jedi, and sometimes a home when they are not performing other jobs for Luke or going about their personal lives.

Shortly after the war with the Vong ended, Luke established a new Praxeum on Ossus.

The Academy is visited and appears in the games Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
