quiz, it will be graded and mailed
back to you with the second
quiz. The Philosophy program
will be mailed to you as a binder
containing all 33 quizzes, which
is divided into ten sections. It is
requested that no more than one
section of quizzes be returned
at one time.
At the completion of each program the participant will receive
a certificate and lapel pin. If the
participant is a member of the
Southern Jurisdiction, the certificate of completion will be sent to
the participant’s primary Valley to
be presented to him during their
stated meeting. This will be done
unless the participant wishes the
certificate to be sent to their home
or another Valley. If the participant
is a Blue Lodge Mason, a Mason
outside of the Southern Jurisdiction, or a non-Mason, the certificate and pin will automatically
be sent to their mailing address.
Additionally, we do offer a medal
to be purchased
of the Philosophy
with three additional Teutonic
Cross pins, one
for each course

The quizzes can absolutely be done in a group setting.
