The National Academy, officially the National Academies of the Federated States of Gapla, is a public school in the Federated States of Gapla. It is one of the nation's only public school and one of only three schools in the Federated States of Gapla, amongst one other charter school (National School for the Performing Arts) and one other private school.

Founded in 2015 by Wyatt Baek under the United Republics of Gapla and Phoenix, the Academy provided remedial support for students who were struggling in school subjects under the direction of textbooks created by Wyatt and eventually other teachers. While originally focusing on mathematics, the National Academy today has courses in a variety of subjects at a multitude of levels.

Unlike many other micronational schools, the National Academy is in full operation as any other small school would and has classes meeting weekly on Zoom, with rare sessions in an hourly rented facility. This is likely due to the high value of education placed in Gapla as well as a demand for educational services, presumably due to a more intellectually gifted population, as Gapla was founded inside a gifted program.


The National Academy is officially called the National Academies of the Federated States of Gapla because it is technically not one school, but a

network of three closely connected schools: the National Academy, the National Gifted Academy, and the National Special Educational Academy.

While the National Academy has by far the highest enrollment rate, a few students are enrolled in the National Gifted Academy, a separate school able to be tested into through an IQ of 124 or higher (SD 15). No students are currently enrolled in the National Special Educational Academy, which is for students who have tested at IQ 76 or below (SD 15).

Through a test developed by a PhD of psychometrics at Harvard, the National Academy has been testing its students for entrance into the National Gifted Academy and National Special Educational Academy and the IQ test is mandatory to attend core classes.


The following is a list of the locations of the National Academy:

  • The National Academies, Virtual Campus
