The Raven Academy of Mystical Arts
The Raven Academy has a dedication towards cultivating an effective and tuition-free online space for non-traditional learning and to provide its students with a deeper understanding of different practices. The school is a service provided by Leanai Na Deithe Temple, a Temple nonprofit registered in the state of Minnesota and fiscally sponsored by Leanai Na Deithe Community Center, allowing us to offer Ordination.
When applying, students have the option to choose the Ordination track. During the school year, those on the Ordination track work very closely with the High Council. Those on the Ordination track declare a concentration: Leadership, Teaching, Leadership & Teaching, or Counseling. After a year of schooling and satisfactory Ordination track specific work, the student has the option to apply for graduation as well as Ordination. We have plans to begin offering Associate of Art degrees for Ordination students beginning in 2021.
We are considered a private school. The Raven Academy of Mystical Arts is exempt from licensure pursuant to the Private Career School Act, specifically pursuant to the following section, Minn. Statutes 136A.833 Subd 2 (18); (18) private career schools providing exclusively training, instructional programs, or courses where tuition, fees, and any other charges for a student to participate do not exceed $100. We are not accredited, however, due to there being no board for non-Abrahamic seminaries.
Classes and certificate programs are completely free. Therefore, we rely on grants, donations, and sales from our school shop to pay our faculty.
