The Sapphire Wing

Secondary Education

Stronghold of education and learning, this fortress is in one of the coldest areas of Idalos and home to many knowledge seekers in a variety of disciplines. However, unknown to most, below the city are those who suffer for the sake of science. While all are welcome, not everyone will be treated as they expect.

The Sapphire Wing

The Sapphire Wing
The Perse and Sapphire Wings are the designated wings for primary and secondary education within Viden. These two wings are located in a semi-detached building (each occupying half) a couple of minutes walk from the main academy.

For any freeborn children of Viden, Secondary Education is also compulsory (and free). Slaves, by the choice of their masters, may be enrolled into secondary education at a small expense. However, because these are not compulsory classes, a slave may only attend night classes, in order that freeborn children of the city receive the attention they deserve in their own classes.

It consists of a further education, with the aim of giving them a strong foundation in history (specifically of Viden, but generally of Idalos as a whole), science and geography. This level of education will also develop the skills of literacy and numeracy, for which the foundations were laid during their primary education. A brief selection of arts is also on offer, though some do not rate it as highly as the sciences, thus it is not as structured.

Here, the more gifted (those slated to continue in academia further down the line) are also taught subjects to aid them in critical thinking for futures in research. These select few might also be exposed to philosophy, where there is a distinct level of indoctrination into Yvithia's own personal beliefs, particularly with regard to her views on other Immortals and her theories on the Great Shattering. For children, education is free up until the age of fourteen for humans and nineteen for eídisi.
