The Academy of S. Gabriel is intended to provide free consulting and education to the populace of medieval re-enactment groups like the Society for Creative Anachronism. The members of the Academy will provide free consulting to anyone who asks for it. The goal of the Academy is to promote authentic historical usage of names and armory, although Academy members should always try to design arms that will pass.

The Academy is not a competitor to or a replacement for the SCA College of Arms. Part of its purpose is to provide assistance to submitters before they send in a submission, so that the quality of submissions will be increased and the number of submissions that bounce will be reduced. Senior members of the College of Arms are not specifically responsible for consulting, and the Academy is an attempt to increase the number of experienced heralds who are available to the populace.

For more information, you can read our members' guide.
