Kadic Academy is a combined junior high and high school fictionally located in Boulogne-Billancourt, France.[1] It is where the Lyoko Warriors attend school, as well as a multitude of other characters in Code Lyoko, and is one of the main settings of the show along with the Factory.

It is based on Lycée Lakanal, a real school in Sceaux, France that series co-creator Thomas Romain attended.[2] The name "Kadic" is a tribute to the American novelist Philip K. Dick.


Kadic was built in the early 1900s, as stated in the episode Is Anybody Out There?, though the alternate continuity novels claim the school was actually built in the 1870s. It's possible that the school was founded in the 1870s, but the current building for it was built in the early 1900s.

Plan college

Plan of the school (in French).

The school is made up of various buildings, most of them connected to one another, others not. These buildings include the Dormitory Building, the Science Building, the cafeteria, the Administrative Building, and various other locations. Kadic also has a park, a track and a Recreation Room (opened in Wreck Room) for the students in their free time.

Kadic functions as both a day school and a boarding school; a majority of students seem to live on campus, but there are a significant number of students also commute to the school, one of those students being Yumi, who lives at home with her parents and younger brother Hiroki. The school runs off the Zone C calendar in the French school system.[3] Classes occur 6 days a week, as stated by Ulrich in the episodes Marabounta and Contact, and there are no classes on holidays, Saturday afternoons, or Sundays. Students are allowed to leave the grounds with permission. The sewers connect it to the Factory through an entrance in the park and a tunnel in the Boiler Room.

The school is racially and culturally diverse, containing many people who are French-African or those of Japanese, Chinese, German, Turkish, Italian, and Indian origin. The school hosts runs a number of clubs, ranging from the Pencak Silat classes taken by Ulrich and Yumi (and taught by Jim Morales) to the film club run by Gustave Chardin, of which Odd is a member. Other clubs include the photo club and the drama club. Kadic also has its own newspaper, dubbed The Kadic News, run by Milly and Tamiya.

Jean Pierre Delmas is the principal and Jim Morales is the campus supervisor and one of Mr. Delmas's advisers. Suzanne Hertz is the other adviser, in which she replaced Franz Hopper as science teacher after he mysteriously disappeared in 1994.

Kadic is a private school, therefore it costs a lot of money to attend it. It has the right to select its students, and is funded in whole or in part by charging for students' tuition, rather than relying on mandatory taxation through public (government) funding.

As shown in Nobody in Particular, a Council of Representatives meets annually to discuss the academic progress of each student by grade. The representatives are Mr. Delmas, Mrs. Hertz, Jim Morales, Gustave Chardin, several other teachers, and the class representative. The 9th grade representative was Odd as of Lyoko Minus One.
