TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 20, 2013) - ACADEMY EXPLORATIONS LIMITED ("Academy" or the "Company") is issuing a correction to its press release "OSC Approves Release of Academy's Shares from Escrow" dated February 19, 2013.

Academy is presently not trading on any exchange and does not currently carry on any active business. Management's strategy is to stay liquid while searching for an appropriate opportunity with a private corporation that is looking to expand its operations by acquiring control of, or investment capital from, a publicly owned company such as Academy. Management has decided to invest in public and private mutual funds without jeopardizing liquidity with the potential to earn greater income albeit with higher risk than investing solely in guaranteed investment certificates Academy has looked at some prospective deals. In all cases the private corporation was not yet mature enough or the amount to be invested was too great relative to our capital resources. By mature, the Company means their length of time in business was greater than two years, their latest annual gross revenue was greater than one million dollars, and latest annual net profit was greater than 5%.
All shareholders have the ability to receive a hard copy of the Escrow Agreement and the Commission's approval free of charge upon request.
