Witch School International. Also Known As Correllian Educational Ministries.
Harry Potter had Hogwarts. Little Wyatt on the Charmed series had Magic School. But where does the real life student of the Esoteric go to study Witchcraft and Wizardry? It may come as a surprise, but there really is an established school of Witchcraft that practically anyone with a computer connection can join, and it’s been around now for over 10 years. I joined as a lifetime member back in 2015 when it was known as Witch School International. Today it has gone through a few changes and is coming to be known as Correllian Educational Ministries. But it has the same web address, the same courses and the same mission; to help average muggles who want to learn the Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca begin their Wiccan Journey.
The school is really neat in that it allows students to study at their own pace. I’m still working on my 1st Degree; a study I had to set aside for 2 years due to family health problems, but have now picked back up once again in earnest. There are a wide variety of courses to choose from such as Tarot, Advanced Symbolism and Druid studies…and that is just for starters. You can also enroll in programs to become a priest or priestess in the Correllian tradition. The First Degree level takes about one year of study. After successfully completing the course work the student can then become initiated into the order if they so desire. Initiation is not mandatory; a person can take the program just for the benefit of learning more about an established branch of Wicca without being initiated into the craft.
The Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca is interesting in that it was the first school of Wiccan thought to embrace the internet as an educational tool. This openness has led to the tradition being spread all over the world reaching out to interested people from all races, creeds, nationalities, and all walks of life. The Correllian tradition makes no claims to exclusivity. They see themselves as one branch of paganism among many, and they seek to bridge the gaps between different schools of Wicca and Paganism so that all can unite peacefully for the greater good of all. You can become a Correllian and still practice other faith traditions. So long as one does not violate the Wiccan Rede and shows respect for Correllian practices, one is at liberty to live their life as they see fit. All in all it is a pretty laid back and easy to practice tradition.
How much does membership in Witch School cost? You can pay $5 per month or pay yearly for $29.99. Lifetime memberships are also available. The minimum age to begin study is 13; there is no maximum age. I’m 56 and loving it!
