The Happy Home Academy (HHA), known as the Happy Room Academy (HRA) prior to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, is a housing association that inspects the player's house each day (each Sunday in Animal Crossing: New Horizons), and scores it according to the types of items that have been placed in the main room, as well as the location of the items with regards to Feng Shui. The HRA score can generally be increased by placing rare or expensive items in the house, particularly furniture series which award point bonuses.

Animal Crossing: Wild World[edit]

In Animal Crossing Wild World, the player must join the HRA. Tom Nook first asks the player the second day they go to his store. He will describe what they do and then ask the player if they want to join. If the player says yes, he will be delighted, but if they say no, he will seem sad but says that it is required. At the end of both he says Good luck!, signing up the player.

Spotlight items are worth +151 points. Those which are also lucky are worth +7,777 points.

Points Awarded[edit]

Animal Crossing: City Folk[edit]

The Happy Room Academy headquarters in Animal Crossing: City Folk.

The HRA headquarters is located in the City, where players can view their friends scores via Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.

On Sunday the HRA sends players their evaluation results through the mail. If players do not want to receive the results by mail, they can talk to Lyle at the HRA headquarters. When players select "Letters", he will ask them if they want the letters to stop being sent. If they select "Please stop!", they will stop receiving letters (players can turn them on again by talking to Lyle again).

If players do not receive letters, but need to see how many points they have, they can talk to Lyle at the HRA building.

Model room[edit]

The default model room, if none match a chosen theme.

At the back of the HRA in Animal Crossing: City Folk, is the model room (a room theme chosen by Lyle every month that satisfies a certain theme). If no room fits the theme for the month, there will be no model room, and the area for the model room is replaced by an empty 4x4 room with a concrete wall and floor.


Animal Crossing: New Leaf[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf the academy has been renamed to the Happy Home Academy, and is inside Nook's Homes. It is still run by Lyle, and functions in a similar way as it did in Animal Crossing: City Folk, but there is no model room. Instead, when the player pays their mortgage off, they may accept a theme challenge of a certain genre. Lucky bonuses have changed, and now include villager pictures of residents currently living in town. There is no complete theme bonus in New Leaf, and the Happy Home Academy does not rate the player's basement.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons[edit]

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, after upgrading the player's tent to a house, Tom Nook informs them that all homeowners are automatically registered in the HHA, which will send regular evaluations and advice, but insists they won't intrude on daily life. The HHA has no physical presence on the player's island, but instead it sends an evaluation by mail most Sunday mornings, which cannot be disabled, as well as congratulatory gifts when the player upgrades their house.

It is possible to not receive an HHA evaluation some Sundays; the exact reason for this is unclear, but it may simply mean that there's been no significant change to the score to report compared to the last evaluation.
