I am proud to say that on September 4th, 2016, we celebrated the Fifteenth Anniversary of Witch School. We hope that you will join us in celebrating it. During its history the Witch School site has gone through several hands, originally Witch School Inc., then Witch School International, and Correllian Educational Ministries. But through it all Witch School has continued in its mission of “Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere Pagan and Magical Education.”
Witch School was founded in 2001 by Ed Hubbard, Lisa Tuit, and myself. It was an outgrowth of the earlier Daily Spell which had been offering the Degree Lessons in an email format for several years. When we built the Witch School site it was a huge improvement, offering students a much wider and more user-friendly experience.
At the time it was built, the Witch School site was state of the art. Over the course of fifteen years however, despite various updates of the site, the Witch School site had become rather antiquated.
For this anniversary I am pleased to announce that Witch School is in the process of a complete site rewrite, from the ground up. The new Witch School site will be much more contemporary in look and operation, more user-friendly and customizable, and will offer students and faculty many new options. All of our existing features will be present on the new site, but there will be many new features as well.
Considering the size of the existing Witch School site, I am sure no one will be surprised that we have been working on this for some time. At present we hope that the new site will be open for testing sometime during the month of September, and that it will be open to the student body sometime in October.
We are very excited about the rewrite, as it is the largest structural improvement that Witch School has taken in many years. It has been a major priority since Correllian Educational Ministries acquired the Witch School intellectual properties last year, and we think that students and faculty alike will be delighted with the improved functionality.
Also, when the new site opens we will be restoring a Free Basic membership, as well as continuing the supporting Basic Membership. This is part of our commitment to the educational mission of Witch School.
Meanwhile, in celebration of the anniversary and of the coming new site we will be offering a special on Lifetime Memberships. Now through Samhain only we will be offering Lifetime Memberships for just $49.99. You can take advantage of this special price for Lifetime Memberships HERE
Fifteen years since Witch School’s founding, eighteen years since we first began offering lessons through the original Daily Spell, I think we can justifiably say that when it comes to memberships, a Witch School Lifetime Membership really will be there for the long haul. Other schools have come and gone, Witch School will be here for years to come. So get your Lifetime Membership and enjoy it for a lifetime, or buy one for a loved one or friend –our Memberships are built to last.
Blessings to all!
Rev. Don Lewis, Chancellor
