This article contains plot details about the recently released book, The Lost Continent. It would be best if you did not view this page until after reading the new installment.
(The winglets are not to be confused with the Winglets, which are short e-books in the series.)
The Jade Mountain Academy was founded by the Dragonets of Destiny after the War of the SandWing Succession. It is an inter-tribal school located in the tallest mountain in Pyrrhia, Jade Mountain, in the southern half of the Claws of the Clouds Mountains in the Sky Kingdom. The Academy is currently divided into five winglets; the Jade Winglet, the Gold Winglet, the Silver Winglet, the Copper Winglet, and the Quartz Winglet, each containing a dragonet from each of the seven dragon tribes. Groups of two or three dragonets (excluding Peril) from a winglet share a cave, making them clawmates. Stonemover, Sunny's father, who is slowly turning to stone, lives in a cave deep in the mountain.

The Founders and Staff Edit
Clay is a hall monitor, healer, self-defense teacher and prey organizer.
Tsunami is head of school. (Refers to her being the "leader" of the dragonets)
Starflight is the librarian. (not history because Webs would know more about that subject).
Sunny is the main founder (as the school was her idea).
Webs is the history teacher. (read Starflight's job for more)
Fatespeaker is Starflight's assistant and a helper at the Academy.
The Rooms and Caves Edit
The Library Edit
The entrance, as described by Moonwatcher, starts off as a side corridor lined with hanging scrolls. Many of them have quotes on the such as "Knowledge is a flame in the darkness" and "The claws of war are no match for the wings of wisdom." At the end, a room full of iridescent green sunlight is present (produced by the sun shining through tree leaves placed over windows, one of those windows were torn by Icicle escaping out of them in Moon Rising). Scrolls were everywhere, in cubbyholes on the walls, racks, and cylinders around the cave. Every corner had a spot to curl up and read in, sometimes a rock ledge, sometimes a pile of moss and sometimes carpets. Sunlight came down from skylights in the roof and filtered through leaves covering the windows. There's a circular wooden desk labeled 'LIBRARIAN' in the center where Starflight manages the scrolls.
The Prey Center Edit
The Prey Center, which Clay set up, was often described as chaotic. This is because students were everywhere either catching prey or eating. This was one of the main places where Moonwatcher's head hurt the most but luckily Darkstalker taught her how to stop this. Moon met Winter and Qibli for the first time there after Qibli (or, as Winter called him, "the idiot clawmate") released Winter's pet scavenger, Bandit, that many dragons tried to catch and eat before Moon caught him and gave him back to Winter ( after much arguing )
History Cave Edit
This was where Webs taught history to the students of the Jade Mountain Academy. It was described to be covered in maps (each marked with a different year) and with stacks of scrolls that overflowed the wooden racks provided. This cave was also destroyed by Sora's dragonflame cactus during the events of Moon Rising forcing history class to be relocated to a different cave.
Art Cave Edit
The Art Cave was the room where students learned all sorts of art forms, including painting, pottery glass-working, metalworking, weaving, and woodworking. The room was filled with art supplies tucked into every crevice, and wooden dragon sculptures placed on little stone shelves.
Music Cave Edit
The Music Cave was a vast cave filled with various instruments including harps, marimbas, maracas, and drums.
The "Weapons Cave" Edit
First mentioned in Darkness of Dragons, The Weapons Cave is where weapons were kept if needed to defend the school. The room contains a locked wooden box which holds three daggers, (two after the events of Darkness of Dragons) one sword, and one club (or as Qibli describes it, a "big stick")
Healing Center Edit
Also first introduced in Darkness of Dragons, the Healing Center is where Clay teaches basic medicine. It contains a colored diagram of a dragon (MudWIng) which shows where muscles are located.
Known Classes Edit
Taught by Webs, this class is meant to teach in depth the history of Pyrrhia to attending students. The class is structured in units, with the first unit being The Scorching and going chronologically throughout history afterwards. The next known unit is 500 years after The Scorching, which is described as a rather chaotic time period.
Herbs and Healing Edit
Suggested by Peregrine and Tamarin sometime between ToP and DoD, this class, taught by Clay, is meant to teach the basics of healing to students. The class is shown to outline dragon anatomy to students as a basis for learning proper technique and presumably teaches some botany as "herbs" is in the title.
While not an official class, there is a music cave which dragonets visit as a part of their schedule to learn to play different instruments from across Pyrrhia through their own intuition.
Group Discussion Class Edit
Though the official name of this class isn't well known, nor is it known if this class even still exists, it is lead by Tsunami and is meant as a sort of bonding area for the dragonets within a Winglet to become closer. (Not like that worked at first with the Jade Winglet)
- Jade Mountain Academy is the first known school where dragons of all tribes are taught together.
- The school currently houses all the dragonets of destiny apart from Queen Glory.
- Books six through ten focus on Jade Mountain Academy, specifically the Jade Winglet.
- Anemone, Turtle, Icicle, and Winter are the only known royal figures in the winglets. (Qibli could count since Queen Thorn adopted him.)
