The Salem Institute for Young Witches was established on February 18, 1692, during the Salem Witch Trials, 702 years after Hogwarts and 65 years after Ilvermorny.
The website witchschool.com was first made available to the general public in 2001. A variety of courses on the website include Wicca, Paganism, Divinatory Arts, and other themes. Since its inception, the site has attracted around 240,000 students. Donald Lewis authored the original content for the website, while Lisa Tuit coded it. Witch School launched educational sites in the United Kingdom, Europe, and South Africa on April 1, 2009. Raene Packery was chosen Dean and Head of School for South Africa, while Anna Rowe was designated Dean and Head of School for the United Kingdom and
Europe. Charlynn Walls is the Dean of Academic Studies at Witch School Central right now.
Highlights about the school Witch School is a Wiccan school with campuses in Chicago, Illinois, and
Salem, Massachusetts. They offer both online and on-campus courses.
Rev. Ed Hubbard established it. Just like at Hogwarts, the school year begins on September 1st. If
students live in Massachusetts, they usually travel to Salem Institute by rail, or via portkey if they live in another state. The students are then transported to the Salem railroad station, where the train departs at 10 a.m. Students in the first through fourth grades paddle across the lake, while those in the fifth through seventh grades ride in carriages or walk
to school. Uniforms are worn by Salem, as they are by the majority of wizarding
schools. Unlike the other universities, however, Salem provides girls
with a choice of five uniform styles. Ordinary Wizarding Levels (OWLs) are a set of standardised
assessments for fifth-year students that determine the courses they can
take in their final years at Salem. They’re like No-Mag O-levels in the
wizarding world. The first campus was established in 2003. When the school was first built in 2003, residents of Hoopeston, Illinois, and the surrounding
communities protested and signed petitions against it. In June 2006,
the Witch School was still operating in Hoopestown, and local outrage
appeared to have died down. The documentary film “Hoopeston,” which was released in 2007, focused on the controversies surrounding
Witch School. In 2008, the film premiered at the New York
Underground Film Festival.
Students are allowed to return home for certain holidays, such as Christmas and Easter. Some staff members, as well as students who
desire to stay, are served a dinner. School will resume after the Christmas holidays are over. Because students are overwhelmed with
coursework in preparation for their end-of-year exams, the Easter
holidays are not as enjoyable as the Christmas breaks. Until they reach the age of seventeen, students are not allowed to use magic during the
summer vacation, and magic is also outlawed in the hallways.
