Historically a High Elven - and more recently, Blood Elven - organization, there exists only a formal academy for the Farstriders within the bosom of its creation; Quel'Thalas. Ranger Lord Andrenor Swiftarrow (prior to his comatose state) initially expressed the idea of a Grand Alliance-based Academy to properly train and equip the dwindling high elven presence within it, in one of the most prestigious orders to have existed.

With the dwindling ranks of the 812th Farstrider Battalion, Aeriyth pitched the idea once more to Ranger Lord Keyaloth Brightstar, who was amiable to such and even excited to implement it. Since his return from resigning as Ranger Lord of Quel'Athillien, Keyaloth has worked with the Ranger Lady to privately establish the basis for an Academy within the Alliance. In keeping with tradition and history, the Academy is only open to High Elves and on special circumstances, half-elves that prove themselves a wise investment for the education.

Additionally, the Academy of Quel'Thalas was renowned for the standards set for those enrolled as students and instructors as ruthless as what they taught. Failure in the field results in death, and so the Academy is very critical of such. Drop-outs were exceedingly common due to the harsh nature of the instructors, the trials that students faced, as well as the taxing physical requirements of such.

There is an entry exam, custom to each applicant to test their skills and weed out those who would waste the time of the instructors, the resources of the Academy itself, and the patience of promising students.
