"The Academy" is the twenty-fourth episode of the Disney Channel Original Series American Dragon: Jake Long.


Jake wants to find Rose. However, Kara and Sara arrive at school and tell him that the Huntsclan are up to something. Jake, Spud, Lao Shi, Fu, and Trixe go to a strange area that brings creatures from another dimension. Spud brings a small black cat, but the cat turns into a cat creature with two mouths and eight hairy tentacles with tipped claws. The octopus is destroyed, and it shows that two Huntsboys brought it. Jake and Lao Shi turn into dragons and scare the Huntsboys.

The Huntsboys are taken to the shop and put into a blue cage. Their names are #88 and #89. Jake and Spud disguise themselves as members of the Huntsclan. After Jake and Spud find Rose, they have to find a way to get out of the Huntslair. #88 and #89 escape from cage after they accidentally hit the button which deactivates the cage, where they had their drinks, French fries, burgers, and played video games when Fu wasn't looking. Jake and Spud are having lunch when female Huntsclan member named #18 begins flirting with Spud, but Spud is too shy to talk about the dragons with her.

After Jake and Spud accidentally blow up the science lab and fail to make a deadly potion for dragons, Huntsman sends them into a huge cage arena. The side of another cage releases a Kraken which looked like a giant fish-like beast instead of a giant squid. Huntsgirl (Rose) cuts the lights so Jake can turn into a dragon and defeat the Kraken. Jake succeeds in wrapping the giant Kraken in a chain and hanging it. The lights are turned on and the Huntsclan members see Spud panicking. Spud sees the Kraken hanging and they all cheer for Spud. The Krakken is lured back to his cage with mashed potatoes, griffin legs, and green slime. After #18 fights another female Huntsclan member, after downloading the Huntsclan's plans into a laptop, Jake and Spud escape with Rose. Unfortunately, the real #88 and #89 arrive, and the Huntsman captures Jake and destroyed the laptop. Spud quickly puts the #42 sticker on his shirt and the #89 sticker on the real #42. Spud pretends to be #42 and tells the Huntsclan members that the real #42 is the other imposter. The Huntsclan members capture the real #42. Jake is sent into the dungeon and Rose was told to slay him. Rose succeeds in slaying Jake, but he had previously drunk a purple potion that kills dragons temporarily. Rose, Jake, and Spud escape and go to the dance party. Rose warns Jake that they can't see each other so much; however, Brad takes her to the dance, much to Jake's annoyance. During the credits, #88 and #89 are in a cage at the zoo, and they make funny sounds to make people laugh.


  • This is the second episode where Jake transforms into all of his currently available aliens, the first being "The Hunted".
