The Galactic Federation Academy, also known as the Federation Academy, presumably located on Daiban, is a high school. In the Magazine Z manga, Damara and her friend are freshmen here, with Damara's friend having come to study engineering. Both of them are very good students, something that a bully named Sir harasses them about. According to Damara, it is a "holy academy," implying it is not a secular school.
In Metroid: Other M, all of the 07th Platoon soldiers have "Galactic Federation Academy" in their credentials during the briefing cutscene. Due to the involvement of Koji Tazawa in both stories, it can be presumed that this is the same academy seen in the manga.
