Welcome to the

New St. Brigid's Academy and Seminary Website

St. Brigid's Academy and Seminary (SBAS) is the oldest, continuously active private Wiccan College and online learning site in Southern California and one of the oldest in the state! We have been active for 11 years, having begun our 12th year as of Sept. 2016, and we are now an International school!

SBAS currently provides between 198 and 265 online courses (depending on the individual student's program) and related study materials for Wiccan Degree programs, presented to each student on their own individual SBA web page! It is used nation-wide and is available to international students as well. Our new main campus opened in Upland in 2011.

 

Please Note: We do not receive funding from Federal, State or local governments, are not accredited (by State madate: we are classed as a religous school) and are not subject to the majority of the rules or regulations imposed on mainstream colleges and universities.

DISCLAIMER: This site presents our school in such a way that may lead one to believe we are a traditional college located on college-owned real estate. We are not traditional in this way. We do not own land or buildings and our classes are generally held, weather permitting, outside in nature, or in the homes of students or staff that volunteer their residence for that purpose.

We have made some changes to our web site! We now have a new look!

There are also separate phone numbers and email addresses for each campus. This is to facilitate better recordkeeping and to reduce the load on the Upland campus. We expect these two changes to help us provide better quality service to both our active and potential students. New edits to the site may have created minor problems. Please report any errors you may find. Thanks!


A special thanks to student Talon W. for re-engineering our Logo Button in fine detail seen in our banner at the top of the page. We use it here at the school and modified in our Coven banner.

The Point

The point of our Wiccan Religion, of all traditions of it, really, is to celebrate, to honor, to praise and appreciate life and nature (the God and Goddess) in their many forms. It is NOT in the correctness of how we perform our rituals. It is not in how we dress (or not dress!) for them. It is not in any of the tiny details often involved in ritual planning. The point is to find beauty in all aspects and manifestations of the God and Goddess, and to take pleasure in the simple act of living. By doing so, we honor and respect Them. Sometimes we spend so much time focusing on the theology of our religion that we have often "missed the point" of it!

Perhaps We Should Rethink Our spirituality!
 

But the ability to do this doesn't come easily. It requires practice. When our lives are so full of schedules, and work habits, and other people who need to be pleased, it can be difficult to find spiritual solace in something as small and seemingly insignificant as the flapping of a butterfly's wings.


       NOTICE TO STUDENTS:

Beginning immediately, all students are reminded that you are fully responsible for completing your study programs on your own (as it has always been presented) and for maintaining contact with your professor every two weeks. You will NO LONGER be proded or reminded by your professor to complete your work. Students MUST maintain the two week email contact requirement.   If no lessons have been submitted, or there is no contact, for 30 days the result will be termination from SBAS. Few excuses will be accepted for this failure to comply with these obligations.
