Shouldn't the Commandant of Starfleet Academy be at least an Admiral?

Since it's wartime perhaps most of Starfleet's Admirals have been sent to combat related posts.
Interestingly, after doing some quick research there are two senior officers at SFA in Star Trek Lore. The Commandant, and the Superintendent, in both cases these officers were shown to be of Flag Rank. But if we look at the real life US Navy Academy currently the Superintendent is a VADM while the Commandant is a Captain, over its history the Superintendent has ranged from Commander to Admiral (Four Star), and the Commandant has ranged from Lieutenant to Rear Admiral (Incl. one Colonel). Since Starfleet is patterned on the US Navy is many ways its within the realm of believability for the current SFA Commandant to be a Commander.
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
