Part of Star Trek - The Project

Starfleet Academy was formed to train personnel prior to their joining a starship and being able to leave Earth on active service.

Starfleet itself predates the Federation and was formed with the initial aim of creating a warp 5 capable starship. That dream was realised with the Enterprise NX-01, which launched on -date-

History of Starfleet Academy

Starfleet Academy dates back to mankind's first exploration of the universe and the famous NX project that started the foundations of the Federation1

Many famous luminaries have passed through the halls of Starfleet Academy over the years and several have returned to lecturing positions. After Captain Sulu was promoted, but before he took command of the USS Excelsior, he took a one year assignment as head of Starfleet Academy with Captain Kirk and Commander Chekov taking temporary teaching assignments in various subjects, including space combat.

Captain Kirk has the distinction of being the only cadet who beat the Kobayashi Maru simulation in the Starfleet simulator, a starship bridge simulator that can recreate any scenario or situation to test the cadets. The Kobayashi Maru scenario is an unbeatable situation that tests cadet's character.

During Kirk's time there teaching, he foiled a plan to take over Starfleet by assasinating key officials hatched by several cadets.
