Information on Students

The students category encompasses anyone studying at the school, from Preschools to Post-Grad students. As long as someone is taking classes in Starlight, whether it’s just in their free time, learning a trade, or getting a certificate, they’d be categorized as a Student above anything else. The only exception to this would be students of Police Academy. As it stands, Police Academy is not part of Starlight Academy, so they would be on the citizens under Law Enforcement.

Starlight Academy follows the American K-12 Grading System. If you’re unsure what grade to put your character in, check this page on our wiki. They won’t necessarily have to adhere to that, so you’re free to put whatever grade you want for them. We don’t automatically advance character grades in case the player would prefer them to stay static, so please make sure to update your student’s grade every new school year if you want that. The new school year always begins in September!

Starlight Academy has a preschool and a daycare. People with younger characters should consider putting their children as Students rather than citizens. Older characters that haven’t been exposed to civilization don’t necessarily have to put their characters to preschool, though bear in mind they would be required to take remedial classes that would cut into their free time.

If your character does not fit into any specific grade, for example because they have no formal schooling, they might be played in purely remedial classes, where they take lessons from a variety of grades and receive individual schooling. The focus of remedial classes is to catch the student up to where they should be, and it's uncommon for a remedial student to stay in that 'grade' more than a year or two.

If your character does not have a specific grade (or program, or 'remedial') mentioned, please make sure to add this information. College and graduate student should also make sure to have a major listed (or 'undecided'). Listing this information elsewhere in the application is not enough.
