Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is actually a school for the training of exceptional girls of America how to be spies. The current headmistress is Rachel Morgan, Cammie’s mom. The motto that the girls follow is ‘Learn Her Skills, Honor Her Sword, Keep Her Secrets’. The school resides about two miles from the small town of Roseville, Virginia and half a mile away from highway 10. The adults of the outside world believe Gallagher Academy to be a prestigious, all-girls school, while the local children view it to be a preppy school for privileged snobs. The girls are trained in martial arts, taught real history, learn political secrets, and are given extra credit for cracking CIA codes.
