Ask A Witch: Dracofire in Brantford, ONT
Can you give me any advice into finding a good Wiccan online school where I wouldn't have to pay to learn and become a Wiccan?

As I am of the opinion that an on-line school is not sufficient to learn Wicca, I have not reviewed all the "Wiccan schools" on the Internet and I cannot tell you which is the best. I did go through the WitchSchool.com program back when it was a correspondence course out of curiosity. As an experiential,mystery religion, I believe that Wicca is not a set of dogmas that can be posted on a web-site or sent through the mail. Ask the schools if you can talk to any of their alumni about what benefits they feel they gained. Internet Wiccan schools cannot be accredited, and often seek to gain either money or prestige. Remember to use caution when learning from people online, in the same way you would use caution when interacting with anyone who claims to be an authority on a religion in real life.
