Founded by Scarlet in 1994, Montreal’s own school of neo-Pagan study has undergone several incarnations. Today, after twenty years of evolution, Scarlet and her team of educators and facilitators are proud to present Crescent Moon School.

Crescent Moon offers a broad program in studying cultures and pantheons, history of religions, and cultural magical techniques, all subjects which are of interest and value to the modern Pagan practitioner. The goal of Crescent Moon School is to introduce people to a variety of magical paths and modern Pagan religions. It does not teach a specific path, but rather aims at helping each student discover their own path and potential.

Currently, Crescent Moon offers a concise 4-level program. Level 1 is offered twice a year in September and February, and lasts approximately 18 to 20 weeks. Level 2 and 3 are offered in September only for about 24-27 weeks each. Level 4 involves specialization, and thus is negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
