The Academy is a huge building in Konohagakure located directly at the base of the Hokage Mountain.
The Academy is quite large and is comprised of several buildings which were erected over time. The building can be identified by the tree in front of it which has a swing on it and more so, by the giant sign with the kanji for "fire" on it. Classrooms in the Academy are large and have high ceilings, based on a theory that larger classrooms lead to expensive education, expanding even to the blackboard itself. In front of the blackboard is a podium, situated far from the students' desks and put in a position where the teacher can view everyone at once.
