From Webkinz Insider Wiki
Welcome to the Kinzville Academy! This is a school for your Webkinz pets to learn skills such as strength and style. These skills help your pet to succeed in the Webkinz Stadium competitions, some games and some jobs at the Employment Center.
When go to the Academy, you can only play one pet at a time. However one or all of the pets on your account may take classes. There used to be a fee of 50 KinzCash per class but as of October 20th 2010 the fee was removed, along with the ability to tutor your pet. Tutoring was available up to level 10 of any class and allowed the pet to immediately and successfully pass said class.
Each pet is limited to 3 different classes per day. Deluxe members get one bonus class per day.
If you want your pet to attend a class, click on the Sign Up Sheet. You will be able to view your report card and see the list of the courses that are available. You can choose from the Basic courses or the Talent courses.
Your report card will show you how you have been doing in school as well as how much more work you need to do to complete the course. Classes you passed on your last attempt will be in green, classes you failed will be in red. Your last completed level will be shown.
Pins will be awarded when you complete a level. To see your pins, click VIEW PINS on your report card.

Uses of Skills
You can put the skills you earn to good use in WW.
Your skills will help you win tournaments.
For example, in Webkinz Rally your skill level affects the kinds of cars you get and how well you can maneuver.
Super School Day
On certain days, typically once a month, Ganz holds a "Super School Day" at the Kinzville Academy. Every class a player passes on that day counts twice! This helps the player save a little bit of time.
However, super school days does not count as two days you get to take off of the number of days you get till recess.
Super School Days
(MONTH - DATE - YEAR)
After 15 full days of classes at the Kinzville Academy (3 classes taken by one pet), your pet can attend Recess! There are 4 activities to do at recess. After Recess you get a lunch bag you can open in your room.
For the first couple of years, players had to pay to attend classes at the Academy. The minimum cost of getting one pet through Level 5 in one class was nearly 4,000 KC. The minimum cost of getting one pet through Level 10 in one class was nearly 14,000.
On October 20, 2010, Ganz changed the programming to make it FREE to attend the Academy.
When the Academy no longer cost anything to attend, the Tutor option was removed as well.
