But as you teach them and they participate in combat, students level up their weapon proficiencies and can advance to the next class tier with a certification exam.
Students aren’t limited to one class path as they can switch back and forth from different classes they’ve unlocked. Deciding which class or classes a student will master is ultimately up to you, however, students will show interest or have a natural proficiency in certain skills that make them better suited for particular classes.

Monastery Activities in Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Garreg Mach Monastery is not only home to the Black Eagles, Blue Lions, and Golden Deer houses, but it’s a bustling school filled with plenty of activities. On your days off, you can choose to explore the monastery and participate in these activities. While you can spend as much time as you want to explore, you’re only given a specific number of points to spend on activities, particularly the things that raise student and faculty motivation and bonding.
Remember to spend activity points on students in your house that are low on motivation, especially the ones you teach during the week as they can usually use the boost!
- Sharing Meals
- Choir Practice
- Faculty Training
- Tea Parties
- Training Grounds
Gardening and fishing require no activity points. Cooking, sharing meals, choice practice, faculty training, tea parties, and participating in a tournament at the training grounds require 1 activity point each time you do them. If you spend all of your activity points and want to spend more time on your off day at the Monastery, try chatting it up with some of the students and faculty. They’ll often have side quests for you or offer up useful information. Exploring the monastery for lost items is another great option, too.
