Academia : School Simulator is a simulation game that lets you design, construct, and manage the high school of your dreams! Watch your students as they get bullied, find love, flunk exams, and basically just try to get through the roller-coaster ride that is high school. Will you offer the best teachers and facilities or cheap out and build giant classrooms with a 1:100 teacher to student ratio? It's all up to you!

Student motivation is driven by various needs, including hygiene, hunger, and discipline, and they'll become even more complex as time goes on, eventually competing in school competitions like spelling bees and even falling in love.

Teachers are unique, with different subject specialties and degrees. Eventually they will also have their own motivations that need to be satisfied so they can keep teaching at the highest level.

Build Canteens, Clinics, Computer Labs, Art rooms and much more as you create your dream Educational Complex.

Do you think the janitors aren't doing a good job? Plot out their routes yourself in order to ensure maximum efficiency.
From potted plants to statues and fountains, we have everything to make your school the envy of all! And we'll keep adding decorative objects so that you can have a completely unique school.

Customize your school seal and motto to make a school that is uniquely yours!

Normal mode requires you to balance your budget and provide the best education that you can with your money, while sandbox lets you go utopian with unlimited money!

A built-in achievement system gives you an extra challenge to shoot for when playing the game! Three different achievement levels ensure that everyone gets a reward, no matter their play style.

steam update are quicker than is


Awesome game. But I'm Brazilian and 20 dollars is too expensive here now.


im suprised the devs for prison architect arent suing this yet


The artist for this is the same one who did PA.


friendly reminder that you're putting a 20 dollar game on a website full of 9 year olds asking their moms to buy them games.

$10 or $15 is a way better price point.


too expensive!!

Will this ever go on sale?  I'm just afraid that $20 of my birthday money won't be work it-- can someone tell me if it's worth buying this?

Hi, we will occasionally go on sale for sure.  If you're not ready to buy it yet, it's perfectly fine to wait!

Ahh thanks!  We'll definitely be updating this so there's more to look forward to in the future!


As long as I can still shank a snitch in the showers.
