Starfleet Academy is a four-year institution of higher learning, the primary training facility for Starfleet officers. Located at the San Francisco Presidio, it was founded in 2161. Admission to the Academy was intensely competitive.

Traditionally, when a person who wished to join Starfleet reaches the adulthood, they submitted an application and underwent a series of tests. If accepted, they trained at an academy facility, such as the primary one at the San Francisco Presidio on Earth. A usual course of study for officers is a four-year education, although accelerated programs and graduate training are available. Enlisted service requires a much shorter training course, sometimes at a satellite facility of the Academy or at another Starfleet installation. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia, )
The nature of the division of responsibilities between the Commandant of Starfleet Academy and the Superintendent of Starfleet Academy has not been established. At the modern United States Naval Academy, the Superintendent is the officer in charge of the Academy and the Commandant oversees discipline and day-to-day operations involving midshipmen.
