This is where they begin formal education. A regimen of meditation, physical fitness, classroom sessions, social and team activities as well as unarmed and armed combat training. Students spend about nine hours a day at Academy. All academies are co-ed, with members of both sexes receiving the same training.
All academies are operated by the Kyn Lumu'ai Jael (Lore Keepers Sect). Regardless of location the time honored curriculum is the same at every Academy. An Academy typically handles between 300-700 students. Annual competitions take place between Academies which help foster a healthy competitive mindset.
From the start of the study day until the end all baqli are treated equally. Ruoka (House) and Punla (Family) are left at the door. This helps the young clan members learn to rise or fall on their own merit.
Education at Ruohu Giba'te continues until the baqli turns 16 and takes the Baqnor (move from youth).
