The Shrek Academy over time became an existence that was similar to an independent nation.

The Shrek Academy is situated in the Shrek City which is governed by the Shrek Academy.

It takes 6 years to graduate from the outer academy and one must have at least 4 spirit rings by then. For enrollment, one must be less than 12 years old with a Spirit Rank of above 15. You need to have 2 rings just to be allowed to take the upgrade exam to go from Freshman to Sophomore.

Of those who become distinguished as core disciples and manage to graduate the outer academy, some may pass the exam to enter the Inner Academy and spend another 6 years in school. Inner academy students become known as Shrek Guardians and frequently are assigned high stakes life or death missions. Those who survive the 6 years of the inner academy and graduate are known as the true graduates of the academy and are highly sought after by every country. Inner student are expected to graduate with 6 rings as well. Students whose cultivation can reach 6 rings even before they’re 20 years old are called seeds in the academy. Right now, there are only 4 ‘seedling’ students remaining in the entire academy. They include Ma Xiaotao and Dai Yaoheng. Achieving 6 rings before the age of 20 is also publicly recognized in the continent as the criteria to be called an unrivaled talent.
