The Academies are special schools dedicated to train half gems and quarter gems to become the next protectors of earth. Each academy has 2 pearls as its headmistress and Cross Campus Principal, whilst Garnet is the Superintendent. Each Academy also has an elite team which would compete not only in the Academic Decathalon, but in the sporting events and gem events during the Ultralympics Festival. Origins

Elite Teams

Elite teams are a group of students from the same year, hand picked for their skill, intelligence and strength. Each team is comprised of 9 students whom would live together in the accommodations (such as the Beach Penthouse) and represent their respective schools at events, each Academy has one elite team.After one team graduates, a new one must be formed. However there can be some exceptions in the age range such as Joe whom was held back.Elite teams also act as a task force and members would often get sent on missions. To either capture or contain possible associates of Yellow Diamond and Corrupted Gems or, at times, elimination missions. For missions each team is selected randomly and it is up to the team itself on who goes on the mission. On rare occasions the whole team would go.
