Knowledge & Education

The cultivation of knowledge is a core tenet of the Masonic experience. The Scotish Rite is called the College of Freemasonry as it incorporates 6000 years of human, art, history, philosophy, culture, and politics into progressively unfolding sequences of initiation and educaiton. This way, the Scottish Rite stands prepared to make good on the promise of more light in Masonry through our commitment to education.
