Yancy Academy is the private boarding school that Percy Jackson attended in the sixth grade during the The Lightning Thief. Known classes that can be taken in this school include Pre-algebra, English, and Latin. It is a school for troubled kids, but many of the students were from well-off, rich families unlike Percy. It is well constructed, with lush pine trees all around.


Percy attends the school in The Lightning Thief. Although Yancy Academy is a private boarding school in the book, it was changed to a public school in the movie. In the movie the school has a pool. Percy says because "he likes water".
