Witch School began in 1998 as The Daily Spell, an online site offering free lessons in the practice of Wicca through Internet access.
Initially an email-based teaching program provided by Rev. Don Lewis, on September 4th, 2001, WitchSchool.com was officially opened, and Witch School began offering “anyone, anywhere, anytime, a magickal education.” This mission remains the central focus of Witch School International today.
More than just a learning center, Witch School International is now a growing phenomenon with a branch located in St. Petersburg, offering a library, chat room, store, discussions with over 800 different groups covering the world, several newsletters, a tarot generator, and of course, a thriving online community.
Currently, Witch School International has over 250,000 students, with outlets in the US, Britain, Europe, and South Africa. While originally based on the Correllian Tradition of Wicca, other traditions of Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism are also represented, as well as courses in general magick including various forms of divination, healing, and psychic training, working with a number of Circles, Temples, Shrines, Tribes, Clans, and other group structures worldwide. Reverend Lewis also performs a daily tarot reading, has a “vlog” (video diary), and is actively involved in many aspects of the school.
From basic education through early Clergy training, Witch School International provides individuals with the option of learning the occult arts at the level and speed of their choosing–when time is available. Additionally–and perhaps, most essentially–Witch School International provides access to a Wiccan and Pagan-based community offering personal insight and experience at multiple levels.
While the school does require a minimum time requirement, once a member, there is no maximum time limit. “Even if it takes years to finish your courses, the school will continue to support your studies,” their site explains.
Witch School International uses every major internet tool available, with the entire staff and team working diligently to keep it useful and relevant to today’s fast-paced spiritual world.
At the heart of this school is the desire to help further the individual’s spiritual education and promote their exploration of the magickal world. “We help people become part of the Pagan community, to the level they desire, from being Solitaire to running your own groups, Witch School supports you at every level of learning.”
