"Back to school. She's the Last Daughter of Krypton and one of Earth's greatest heroes, but for Kara Zor-El, being Supergirl means feeling like she's got no place to call home. Family? Her cousin Superman causes her more trouble than even he can fix. Friends? Team-ups with crazy vigilantes like the Red Hood aren't friendships. Romance? Even when she meets a great guy, chances are she'll have to rescue his parents from the rubble of her latest run-ins with evil. So when a deep-space school called the Crucible - an intergalactic academy that trains the universe's most powerful beings - comes calling, Supergirl is happy to go. There, she's no "superheroe" - she's just like everyone else. But this strange school hides dark secrets. Just what are Kara and her new friends being trained for? And what does Crucible want with Supergirl's clone "cousin," Superboy? Once the truth comes out, Supergirl may not make it to graduation!" -- Page [4] of cover.

Supergirl finds herself in a new situation in the main story of this collection, which finds the character enlisting in a stellar academy for powered beings, one that harbours its own secrets. The main story works quite well, while other issues, being part of a crossover or one of the possible future tales that were a thing at the time of original publication, feel a bit disjointed.
