Eden offers a top-class education in every field...from academics to sports to the fine arts.

Eden Academy (イーデン (こう) , Īden Kō?), formally known as Eden College (イーデン・カレッジ, Īden Karejji?), is a highly prestigious private school located in Berlint, Ostania.

Eden Academy is regarded as the top school in the nation. It has a student body of roughly 2500, ranging from ages 6 to 19. Its strict education and that many of its students and alumni come from families with prominent status has made it extremely desirable for families to enroll their children. Some parents even offer "donations" to enroll their children or buy good grades, but it has been made clear that the headmaster and school administration are not easily bought.[1]

It has been noted that there is a gulf between the alumni families and first-generation students that leads to bullying and discrimination in the student body.

Students are divided into dormitory boarders and commuters. Students who do not stay in the school dormitories travel to school by bus or in their own chauffeured car.

There are a total of 8 classes or groups for each year.[2]

  • Specter Hall
  • Cline Hall
  • Cecile Hall
  • Wald Hall
  • Malcom Hall
  • Hamilton Hall[3]
  • Villiers Hall[3]
  • Rose Hall[3]


In First Year, there are four core subjects; History, Math, Science, and Reading. During Midterm Exams, students are tested on each of these subjects. Other secondary subjects include Physical Education, Arts and Crafts, and Classical Language.

After the exams, the completed tests are kept in a tightly guarded vault in North Hall until grading is completed.

Stella Stars are awarded to the highest and second-highest performing students of each grade for each of the subjects. Any students who fail will receive a Tonitrus Bolt, without exception.

At the end of the term, students are divided into new classes based on their ability and performance.

Admissions Process

The admissions process consists of two phases, the entrance exam and the family interview. Upon passing the entrance exam, the family is required to attend a mandatory family interview and must include both parents.

Entrance Exam

The entrance exam is a written exam that takes place in a large hall overseen by an examiner. The exact passing score for the written exam is unknown, but Anya manages to barely pass with a score of 31.

Family Interview

The selection process begins even before the actual interview itself. While the applicants and their families are en route to the interview site, the teaching staff watch and evaluate their every move from the buildings above, passing or failing them based on their elegance. When they are queuing to confirm their interview appointments, applicants who have passed are directed to Assembly Hall A while failed applicants are directed to Assembly Hall B.

On the way to Assembly Hall A, applicants are further presented with obstacles to test their ability to resolve them with elegance. For example, a student pretends to be stuck in a gutter with dirty water and applicants must help him without dirtying their clothes. Soiling their clothes results in an immediate failure and ejection from the school premises.

At the family interview, the families are interviewed by three teachers, who are also the dormitory housemasters. The parents are presented with questions regarding how they met, their reasons for enrolling their child, and their parenting style. The child is then asked about their hobbies, goals at Eden Academy, and their parents. The applicants are scored based on how they answered the questions.


The scores are tallied and a list of accepted students are posted in alphanumeric order. Applicants who were not accepted but scored highly are placed on a highly confidential waiting list. If an accepted student withdraws, an applicant on the waiting list will be offered their spot instead.

Awards and Demerits

Stella Star.png Stella Stars ((ステラ), Sutera?, lit. "Star") are a form of medals that are awarded as merits. Stella Stars are awarded for exceptional grades and contribution to society. Stella Stars have also been awarded for long-term volunteer activities and singular feats, like saving lives or assisting law enforcement.
Tonitrus Bolt.png Tonitrus Bolts ((トニト), Tonito?, lit. "Thunderbolt") are demerits that are given to students who have shown poor grades or misconduct, earning eight results in immediate expulsion. It has been shown that a high-ranking faculty member can lower the amount of Tonitrus Bolts earned from a misdemeanor at their discretion.

List of misconducts:

  • Use of violence on another student automatically gives the student 3 bolts.[4]
  • Yelling "Die" at another fellow student is enough to consider giving the student a single bolt.[5]
  • Failure to carry around a handkerchief at all times.[6]


Every hall appears to have a dormitory on school grounds. Each dormitory has a Tutor In Residence and Dorm Mother. Students are required to wake up early for morning muster. Offenses such as missing morning muster, untidy clothes, eating outside of scheduled mealtimes are punished with helping the Dorm Mother with chores and being forbidden from leaving the dormitory grounds.


The standard boys uniform consists of a black jacket with gold accents and buttons worn over a white button-up shirt with a rounded collar and black knee-length trousers. The emblem of Eden Academy is embroidered on the left breast of the blazer.

The standard girls uniform consists of a knee-length dress worn over a white button-up shirt with a rounded collar and black shorts. The dress is black with gold accents and a square neckline. A red ribbon is worn at the collar with a gold emblem. The emblem of Eden Academy is embroidered on the left breast of the shirt, typically not visible under the dress. When commuting, the girls also wear a round black hat with gold accents.

The uniforms have several variations, as some older male students wear longer black trousers and some older female students wear a black pleated skirt under a shorter version of the dress instead of the shorts. Imperial Scholars wear a black cape with dark red lining over the standard uniform. A gold cord holds the cape together at the chest.[7]

The P.E. uniform consists of a white short-sleeved polo shirt with a black collar, as well as a tag bearing their name, class, and year across the back. The emblem of Eden Academy is embroidered in red on the left breast of the shirt. They also wear black gym shorts with a gold stitch pattern going up the sides. There are no apparent differences in gym uniforms between genders.[5]

Though not shown, the order for a uniform also includes a winter coat and a sweater vest.[8]

Geography and Architecture

Eden Academy.png

Eden Academy is made up of multiple complex buildings contained within a spacious campus. The school grounds are about the size of a small town, with small hills, a river where you can do things like rafting, and there are things like a farm, manoeuvring grounds, a small, old castle and so on scattered around the grounds. Eden Academy also places importance on training in livestock and agriculture, as a result, there are many animals used for studies.[3]

Stella Lake.png Stella Lake: Stella Lake is a large circular lake on school property that can be traversed to via a river. It is surrounded by forests with a trail leading to it.

The presence of a pier suggests people have used the lake for boating activities.[12]

Wald Hall wins the dodgeball match by a landslide, led by Bill Watkins.[5]
Damian's Art Project.png Arts and Crafts Class: Students are assigned into groups of about five at random and given a limited amount of supplies to create a three-dimensional model with the theme of "animals".

Stella Lake River Ride.png School Holiday: The Tutor In Residence of Cecile Hall Dormitory takes the male students staying in Cecile Hall's dormitory to the movies and roast beef.

They go on a boat trip to Stella Lake via a river. After falling into the river, they make a fire and catch fish to eat, hiking up to the lake afterwards. They are later assigned to write a field report.[12]
Pastry of Knowledge.png Pastry of Knowledge: A former royal chef visits the school unannounced to serve extraordinarily delicious desserts in the cafeteria. Due to many of those who manage to eat his desserts going on to become Imperial Scholars, it has led to rumors of the "Pastry of Knowledge" instantly making students smart enough to become an Imperial Scholar. George Glooman manages to get the last set of macarons but is pressured into giving four to the group. Damian loses the game of Old Maid and the macarons are shared between the others.[18]
