" Through a demanding curriculum of physics, philosophy and physical education, your monsters will earn their PhD in Advanced Destruction. Failing that, we have a large supply of steroids. "
The Monster Academy allows a player to train their monsters (after being unlocked) to greater levels. Many properties of monsters may be changed by training them - speed, health, damage, goo cost, production time, etc. - but not all are affected by 4 training levels. You cannot upgrade the Academy while training a monster.
In general, training is a trade-off between increasing desirable properties - speed, for example - while increasing undesirable qualities - goo cost and production time - as well. It takes a large amount of putty to upgrade a monster, but it is worth it, as the monster has more speed or damage, etc. Upgrading Eye-ra for the Monster Bunker is a good strategy, as speed and damage will increase. However, there will be a large rise in goo cost.
In lower levels you may sometimes want to protect your academy (not always a smart decision). Every time the Monster Academy is destroyed (if a monster was training in it), your monster's training pauses until the academy is repaired.
As your level increases, the Monster Academy isn't as an important building as you have to protect other important buildings, so you may use this building as bait. You can build more than one Monster Academy. The second can be built when your Town Hall is level 5+. Recycling this building will not reduce the levels of your monsters, so once you upgrade all your monsters to level 6 you can recycle this building for space and free resources.But the disatvantage is the same as recycling a monster locker
