Wiccan College Course Details

Our training will lead to ordination of High Priest or Priestess. All class materials are either original works or public domain (appropriately noted in each lesson). This lesson plan may change from time to time, to keep our lessons as mentally and spiritually inspiring as possible for you. Your First through Third Degrees will take you a minimum of one year and one day, per degree. Keep this in mind when completing your homework. You'll be assigned additional coursework if you seem to "fly" through it, as we seek to challenge every student to learn as much as they can through each Degree. Upon completion of each degree, students are encouraged to participate in our Online Initiations (if you are choosing to walk the Sacred Mists Tradition Path) and Degree recognitions.
