Academies are ancient naturally spawning structures that spawn above-ground in desert biomes. They are semi-common, and usually several can be found per desert. They can sometimes be found buried in sand, though are not in a state of disrepair like other ancient structures. They have recently been redesigned to loosely resemble the Library of Alexandria, one of the largest, most famous, and important libraries of the ancient world.

Academies are mostly made of sandstone. They contain bookshelves which go up as high as the academy ceiling, and have eight chests of ancient items around the interior. The loot inside can range from junk to moderately valuable.
