The Ninja Academy is where would-be ninja potentials start; they are not actually considered ninja until they graduate.

Basic weapon and tool usage, such as simple kunai and shuriken throws and [[exploding tag]] usage, are commonly taught. [[E-Rank|Elementary ninja techniques]], though they vary from village to village, are also taught; among these techniques they also include:

* The [[Cloak of Invisibility Technique]]<section end=summary />
 
   
Upon graduating, students receive a special band of fabric with a metal bar bearing the symbol of their village (which can be worn in many ways). It is commonly referred to as a "[[forehead protector]]" or hitai-ate. Some villages also have an additional test given by the [[Jonin]] sensei of each three-man squad to see if they are truly ready to graduate, and to ensure that only truly qualified ninja are promoted. The test for determining which three teams may become [[Genin]] are administered by each team's respective Jonin commander, and vary depending on the Jonin. Those who fail their test are sent back to the academy.

Academy students (忍者学校性, Akademī-sei) make up the student body of the Ninja Academy, where they are trained and prepared for life as a shinobi. They are not an actual part of the shinobi force, as they are still in the process of mastering the very basics of the ninja lifestyle. However, they can be conscripted as part of the war potential in times of emergency.

Academy students spend their time honing the various skills they are required to have and undergoing various tests and exams to see how they progress. Besides ordinary school subjects such as history and mathematics, they are taught the basics of Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and most likely also Genjutsu. This includes learning about chakra and how to control it, tactics, hand seals, and several E-rank techniques, such as the Clone Technique and the Transformation Technique. They are also trained in working both individually and in teams.

Eventually they are given a graduation test to see if they are ready to try and become genin. Passing this test does not mean automatically grant them this title, as they need to pass a second test given by their jōnin instructor, but they do receive a forehead protector. Those who fail either of these tests are send back to the Academy. The requirements for graduating vary from village to village. In Konohagakure, the Academy students simply have to show their proficiency in a randomly selected E-rank technique. In Kirigakure, however, the test was a life-or-death battle at one time. A practice since changed, after Zabuza Momochi massacred an entire graduation class.
