While there's some debate over how many magical schools Andoran has, apparently whatever ones they have aren't impressive enough to be mentioned. There is, in short, a gap in a magic arms race between they and Cheliax. It might be interesting to see them try to build a new academy, only to find help from a source they didn't expect.
There are no listed magical schools in the Cheliax book either. And looking at high level spellcasters in the respective books, Andoran actually looks to have an advantage in Wizards, if anything.
In fact, the Almas University Provost is a 17th level Wizard. Which, to me, seems to indicate that Almas University, though not primarily or exclusively a magic school, probably has a fairly robust magical curriculum available to students who are interested.
Which is not to say that the Magaambya's aid wouldn't be both useful and appreciated, but there's no real evidence of the disparity in resources you're citing here.
I was thinking of the Egorian Academy Infernal Binder School chiefly.I think it's mentioned in the Inner Sea Primer
But to be fair, that is the only one I can think of by name so I maybe reading too much into it and some of the players guides to Cheliax based APs :o Wouldn't be the first time I've earned a silver in jumping to conclusions
