Welcome to Salem Witches' Institute Edit

We live in an interesting time––one of great change and upset that is present in every inch of magical society.

Out of Character InformationEdit

Salem Witches' Institute was created by Apokalipse before the other Wizarding schools were established as canon by JK Rowling in Pottermore; most notably Ilvermorny. It was originally made to be the American counterpart to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Although there is a Salem Witches' Institute in the canon of Harry Potter, this is not affiliated with that organization whatsoever. This wikia's information is based largely on canon Harry Potter lore, but most of the lore on the American Wizarding World is original.
