The Sumeru Academia is Sumeru's leading institute in arcane arts and historical records. It accepts students from all over Teyvat and often sends students to other nations to conduct research.

It is unknown how long the Academia has existed, but it was already a prestigious institute by the time of the cataclysm 500 years ago,[1] making it predate Sumeru's current Archon.

Lisa, who is hailed as its most talented student in two hundred years, graduated after merely two years of study. However, she chose to leave Sumeru and return to Mondstadt after seeing the cost of "uninhibited erudition."[2]

Students and Alumni


  • The English name uses the Ancient Greek term Academia (Ancient Greek: Ἀκαδημία Akademía), a prominent school founded by the philosopher Plato, from which a common noun "academy" was derived. This emphasizes the scientific and philosophical natures of the Academy.
  • The Chinese name uses a term literally meaning an "institute of religious decree" (Chinese: 教令院), where "religious decree" (Chinese: 教令) is also used to refer to the decree in Catholic canon law or the fatwa in Islamic law. This emphasizes the theological and juridical natures of the Academy.
  • The Japanese name follows the Chinese interpretation, while the Korean name follows the English interpretation.
