* Any Ninja Village worth their salt now has a competent Ninja Academy in ''{{Naruto}}''. Training as a ninja is voluntary, but it most often starts at a young age (The Rookie Nine enrolled when they were eight years old). Though, there seems to be a lacking of [[ThereAreNoTherapists therapists]] for students who need it, though one (Naruto) is a pariah of the village, and no one would have a problem with the other (Sasuke} trying to take revenge on the person who killed his entire family. Tobirama Senju was the Hokage who founded the first ever Ninja Academy too, which quickly spread to all five nations.

* The StarWarsExpandedUniverse sometimes features military academies, usually those belonging to the Empire. Just how Rebels get trained isn't often shown; most characters we get to know tend to have gone through the Imperial system or sometimes a neutral third-party state's equivalent before lighting out and signing on with the Rebellion, and being LaResistance and therefore somewhat MildlyMilitary in character -not to mention being [[NoBudget chronically short of funds]] most of the time- the Rebels might not actually ''have'' an equivalent.

* In the {{Daria}} ExpandedUniverse (specifically, the FanFic series 'Legion of Lawndale Heroes'), there is the United States Academy for Extranormal Studies. The academy (or 'the Axe' as it's also known) also incorporates elements of AcademyOfAdventure, EducationThroughPyrotechnics (read up on ''Zero Area'', where the REALLY powerful students train), MeasuringDay (the word for this is 'Ow'), SuperheroSchool and WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld (where '' 'The Alliance' '' comes in).

** Navy here. OCS for Navy or Marines is not a really a school in any sense. Its much, much more akin to Recruit Training. Navy Officers and Marines don't really get trained, just selected, conditioned and tested. For example, a Marine will not even fire a live round all of OCS.

** United States Military Academy, West Point, New York: Most definitely ''not'' ever called the United States Army Academy, despite it being exclusively for the training of Army officers. (Nonetheless, West Point's sports teams are referred to as "Army".) So named because it's by far the oldest of the US military academies, and there was no expectation at its founding that additional ones would later exist.

* In the flashback arc of ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'', Char Aznable and Garma Zabi attend the Zeon Military Academy together and develop a strong rivalry and friendship. Later, cadets and graduates of the Academy stage the Dawn Uprising, an attack under Garma's leadership against the Federation garrison of Side 3 in response to (rumoured) Federation repression. The original ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' established that Char and Garma had attended the Academy together, but ''The Origin'' greatly elaborated on it.
