Adventure Academy Review

Adventure Academy is a kids' online learning program from the creators of ABCmouse and ReadingIQ. It focuses on five subjects: math, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. Adventure Academy is kidSAFE and COPPA certified.

The learning experience in Adventure Academy is highly gamified and takes place in a virtual school where the other pupils are students from around the world. There is the option to include social interactions of different levels, with players completing quests to drive forward their learning. They view videos, read books, and engage in interactive activities as part of their learning.

Is it good for learning?

Educational Value

Adventure Academy gives a lot of freedom to kids, and it is possible for them to avoid many learning experiences and do other things within the app. You can detect this through the monitoring and assessment tools but not directly intervene.


Adventure Academy has some social communication features. Automatic tools moderate these, and parents can turn them off if they choose.


Adventure Academy is free to download on all of the app stores — note that on PC and Mac, the app is not web-based but requires a native app download. After a free trial, you have a choice of subscriptions. One subscription covers three kids and one parent.

We want Adventure Academy to give parents and teachers more control over the educational experience to guide kids to the most relevant educational experiences. A more linear option through the learning material as an alternative to the virtual world would open up new possibilities for educators to support kids using the app.

Benefits for Students

Adventure Academy uses gamification to make learning fun and engaging. Kids can complete quests, play games, and solve puzzles, which can motivate them to learn and develop problem-solving skills. They can also enjoy a social experience moderated by Adventure Academy's automated tools.

Benefits for Teachers

Adventure Academy does not feel ideally suited for school use. Its social features, open-world-style learning environment, and sandbox nature make it a better complementary resource than one around which teachers can build their lessons and curricula. 

The progress reports and assessment information are useful for teachers to understand how kids use the app.

Benefits for Parents

Due to its strong game-like feel, Adventure Academy is ideal for supplementing more structured learning experiences. It occupies the halfway point between education and entertainment that kids are likelier to adopt than a pure educational activity.

This makes Adventure Academy more constructive than pure entertainment apps and games. It will give kids extra practice and help them think about problems in new ways, but you should not rely on it for kids' primary learning, especially if you are homeschooling your kids.

Adventure Academy can allow chatting between owners of the app. Parents, however, can restrict this or turn it off. You can set it to allow chat, which will use automated filters to provide protection but which might not be 100% effective. The next level lets you restrict chat to pre-defined statements. Finally, you can turn off all chat functionality. We advise parents to think about this setting carefully, considering their child's age and maturity.

Download Adventure Academy

You can download Adventure Academy on your iOS or Android devices from the app stores. Download the Adventure Academy app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our reviewer's recommendation

With its high-quality graphics, content, gameplay, expansive curriculum and highly motivating reward system, Adventure Academy combines education with the feel of modern mainstream video games to create an educational platform that your kids will ask to use. As I've said above, it is not an app to underpin kids' learning or help them address specific difficulties, but as a supplemental learning experience it is a five-star app.
