Grounds and Exterior
Located several miles outside of the southern outskirts of Coronet, the academy has large expanses of forest outside of the eastern, western and southern sides of the high stone walls that surround the academy grounds. A gated entrance on the academy's northern side is the only opening in the outer walls.
The academy grounds are largely open save for the intermittently spaced meditation or ornamental gardens on the northern and southern sides, and there are approximately 120 yards between the outer wall and academy, making an unobserved approach difficult. A large, enclosed hangar with it's doors opening to the east is situated on the southeastern side of the academy.
The front, northern entrance, to the academy is situated at the top of a stairwell leading up from the grounds and at least one Jedi Knight or Master is stationed at the front entrance at all times, with at least an additional Knight or Master also being stationed in the hangar. The hangar has an exit leading onto the southern grounds.
Video monitors are positioned on all sides of the building and the lighting within the gardens and on the building is designed to prevent the chance of an unobserved approach across the grounds. The camera feeds are monitored at all times and the lighting is meticulously maintained. Additional cameras are located in the public areas of the academy, specifically near the entrances, in the corridors and outside of certain areas including the archives, council chambers, infirmary, dining hall, infirmary and armory.
The front entrance opens onto a long hall with branches to the east and west located beyond two stairwells that lead to the second floor.
The eastern corridor leads to the dining hall and hangar, with the western corridor leading to the new student center, lightsaber and basic Force training classrooms. The southern portion of the academy's first floor is occupied by additional classrooms, administrative offices and conference rooms.
The upper floor is where the council chambers, guest quarters, dorms and archives are located. The dorms are on the eastern side, the guest quarters in the center and the council chambers and archives on the western side.
The basement is where the infirmary and generic training rooms are located, along with a small armory where blaster rifles and other weaponry are stored.
