Ashlar Collage The Program

The Ashlar Collage logo

The Ashlar College of Freemasonry (ACF) program of instruction has been structured to cover three levels, each level containing 6 courses, under three specific categories – History, Governance, Philosophy, — with two courses from each category for each level.

Volunteer adjudicators are now being sought, and interested brethren are asked to contact the Dean of the College, Rw Bro. Chris Foxon.

The program is progressive, with the completion of each level mandatory before moving to the next level. All coursework will be electronic. Adjudicators for each course will be assigned to each student to assist him in the satisfactory completion of that particular course.

In addition to the coursework itself, students will be provided with several lists of reference books on the subject and encouraged to add those books to their own personal library.
