In the registration form, there is a spot asking for the next few events you're child will be attending. Part of Page School is a belting ceremony, not too dissimilar
from apprentice/protege/etc belting ceremonies. They will receive a special purple belt that distinguishes them as a Page School student. They will also receive a notebook
for tracking their hours and opinions on the activity they participated in. YES! You may start tracking their activities before the ceremony begins! Once they are registered, they are in!
Why should we do Page School?
Sometimes you love the first thing you do in the Society and unless encouraged to explore other aspects you might not discover the multitude of opportunities it has to offer. Page School helps give youth opportunities to see a
variety of ways they can be involved in the SCA throughout their lives.
Retaining, teaching classes, helping equestrian setup, seige weaponry, making announcements, etc. The opportunities are nearly endless and yet, not always obvious.
There are rewards as well. For the special belt, you will recieve coins along your journey as you complete categories, signifying your knowledge and commitment to the
Arts & Sciences, Chivalry, and Service. There is also a scroll you can earn, signifying completion of the levels. While you may only complete each level once, you may continue earning coins in the various areas until
you age up into the next level.
How old does my kid need to be?
ANYONE under the age of 18 may register! The ages are broken down into categories, these titles carry no
• Child Division (0-6 years) is the Intro level.
This level is meant to introduce youth to the SCA and all it can offer. We ask the youth to
“try everything”. Whether it’s dancing, archery, helping on the list field, or assisting with
a feast. The goal of this level is to give the youth a broad understanding of the SCA. This
level is geared towards younger children and an adult should accompany the youth while
they earn credits.
• Youth Division (7-9 years) is the Learner level.
The focus for this age group is on learning more about what interests them. This group is
similar to the Child Division but with less parental involvement* and focused on the
youth getting more involved. (*Note: youth policies still apply)
• Junior Division (10-12 years) is the Journeyman level.
The goal of this age group is to start learning about a path of interest in either A&S,
Service or Chivalry. In this rank you will learn the basic fundamentals and skills of the
Middle Ages and the SCA, including history, protocols, and behavior.
• Teen Division (13-15 years) is the Intermediate level.
Now that you have picked an area of concentration in Page School, this age group will
progress by building upon the fundamentals and expanding on skills and knowledge.
• Young Adult Division (16-17 years) is the Scholar level.
This is the final chapter in Page School. This is the culmination of learning as a youth
within the SCA. This goal of this group is readying themselves to become adults within
the society and are expected to refine their skills to near-adult levels and to exercise
leadership in their chosen area.
At events, demos, even meetings, have your youth track their activities and time spent. Check our Calendar at the link below for belting ceremonies and contact our
Dean to let her know you'll be coming! Meanwhile, start reporting everything your youth has already done at the
Credit Hour Reporting form.
