Alvarna Academy is a location in Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.

Alvarna Academy is where Aaron and Aria can learn crafting recipes, use crafting stations, train combat skills, and connect to other players over wi-fi. It is located in Cherry Blossom Square in Alvarna.


The school is not available to build until Kyle is married and his child is born. After the child is born, Kyle and his wife become concerned over the child's future education, and decide to build a school. Kyle can then speak to Byron while he's in Mayor's House 1F. The school will cost 10,000 G and 1,000 Wood, and will take only one day to build.

When Kyle approaches the school, the first generation ends.


Both teachers only give two lessons per day. To learn a recipe, Aaron and Aria must speak to the teacher in the Classroom between 9:00am and 11:30 am or between 12:00pm and 5:00pm.

For details on which recipes are taught on what dates and times, see below.


To build expansions, Aaron or Aria needs to talk to Mayor Byron while he's in Mayor's House 1F. All of the school's expansions must be unlocked and explored in order to complete the game. When the Workshop expansion is first built, it will be empty. Aaron and Aria must purchase the tools from Yue by selecting "I'd like a bargain. See Yue's page for more information on tool costs and availability.

  • Kitchen: For Cooking. At first, only Simple recipes are available. To cook more advanced recipes, Aaron and Aria must also purchase a Knife, Frying Pan, Pot, Oven, Mixer, and Steamer.
  • Pharmacy: This chemistry set allows the creation of Pharmacy items such as medicines and fertilizers.
  • Full Set of Tools: The Appliances allow Aaron and Aria to turn Milk, Eggs, and Fleece into Cheese, Mayonnaise, and Yarn. The Seed Maker tool will turn any Crop into a bag of seeds.
  • Music Player: After defeating a dungeon boss, Aaron and Aria can listen to its theme music with this. However, they cannot do anything else while listening.


Building the Dojo costs 10,000G and 100 Wood.

The Dojo allows the protagonist to earn Skill Seals and Missing Pages for Magic Books by defeating monsters.
