This map was built for the titular Jump Academy TF2 group, a large community of jumpers of all skill levels here to help people learn and improve their jumping skills, with jump_academy being the first step for anyone that wishes to go from zero to hero.
The map contains 5 courses, 4 of them for beginners and 1 for intermediate players. The beginner courses are designed to introduce new jumpers to the core aspects of jumping without overwhelming them too much. Those are:
ABC Course: Contains 10 jumps, all of the jumps has the player navigate a simple obstacle course where they only need to fire one rocket at a time to get through the challenges.
Wall Course: Contains 13 jumps, the jumps provides exercises for learning how to utilize walls to extend a rocketjump, later on air strafing for controlling the trajectory for a jump.
Pogo Course: Contains 15 jumps, the jumps focuses exclusively on pogoing, while initially a gimmick for jumps maps, truly starts to shine when speed is involved for pogoing.
Sync Course: Contains 10 jumps, the jumps are too high for a normal jump and the walls cannot be shot at, so players have to use 2 rockets at once to get through these tricky jumps, but later on 3 rockets will be required.
Timed Course: Contains 10 jumps, for intermediate players only this course has you do a simple obstacle course where you biggest obstacle is a timer that sends you back if you can't complete the jump fast enough.
-- Besides the courses, the map also contains MGArena, an enclosed arena with various pillars for practicing Marketgardening in a PvP scenario. The arena is initially locked off, requires a moderator to noclip into a secluded room behind spawn and hit the blue floor switch.
The map also contains the Ctap Wall in spawn, an advanced mini obstacle course that requires people to "crouch-tap", a technique that allows player to get extra height out of their rocketjumps, only for advanced players.
