The Academy Girls in Princess Academy

By Shannon Hale

The Academy Girls

All of the academy girls come from Mount Eskel and have lived in the village together their whole lives, with the exception of Britta. Through their shared goal, they band together to learn their lessons, stand up to Tutor Olana when she's being unfair, and fight against the bandits when they come. They may not get along all the time, but they're still Mount Eskel natives who will stand together and fight against outsiders.
