Ghosts spent an average of four years at the Academy. Attempting to speed the process resulted in "bad" ghosts. Most of the instructors, like the Program director, were non-psychics.
Under the Dominion, most of the training is done by preceptors who teach various topics.
Students are assigned "class" ratings, first through fourth. First-class students have more experience and are responsible for training lower-class students.
Following the escape of Corbin Phash and his propaganda campaign, the Ghost Academy began training students in groups on the recommendation of Superintendent Sarco Angelini. While Angelini believed this resulted in a superior training technique, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk was only interested in the public relations value.
Upon entry to the academy, a ghost's past life is considered irrelevant. Under the Dominion, it is still possible for a trainee to maintain correspondance with family prior to mind wipe. Most who emerge from the academy's training do so with a grim outlook on life.
Prior to the Great War the Academy was located in Tarsonis City on Tarsonis. The facility had sublevels that went from A-Z, with levels below A being secured by an Omega level security lock. A statue of Major General Brantigan Fole was placed in front.
The Confederate Academy was used to conduct secret research on the zerg.
The facility was restored on Tarsonis only to be destroyed during the zerg invasion of the planet. After the Brood War, the ruins of the academy were used as a refuge by the Scantid Pirates, before they were cleared out by Meatbag Squadron. The squadron then used the facility for training exercises, but the feral overlord Green Eyes overran the base with zerg, killing the entire squadron except Private Caston Gage.
The Terran Dominion rebuilt the Academy and moved it to Ursa. The Ghost Academy is not considered a secret organization, but has been promoted as a wholly positive institution where psychic children are taught to control their powers. The secrets of the Academy are being targeted by former Dominion senator Corbin Phash and Umojan Protectorate minister Jorgensen.
The installation was assisted by "Sparky", a computer system which monitored training, communication and security. At some point, Sparky rebelled against his masters, seizing control of the facility's battle-bots, though was defeated by Lio Travski.
