Scottish Rite NMJ

More than just a website, is dedicated to explaining just who Freemasons are, and what we stand for. It serves as a guide for men looking to understand the truths of our craft and the rewards of our brotherhood. It is a place where information about Freemasonry is accurate, visually compelling, and aspirational.


In early 2017, the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite commissioned the most comprehensive, data-driven analysis of the Scottish Rite and Freemasonry in more than 20 years. The results of that study are outlined by former Sovereign Grand Commander John Wm. McNaughton in his the seminal work, Reclaiming the Soul of Freemasonry. The book forms the strategy that will guide the Scottish Rite as our fraternity creates new resources for members, completely revamps its use of technology, and inspires all Brothers to feel deep pride in the organization.

Welcome to the Valley of Fort Wayne Scottish Rite. Our Valley has long prided itself as a very special place as we build upon our friendships and enjoy our journey together as Freemasons. We stand together in good times and bad and strive to fulfill our Masonic obligation to care for one another.

Who are we? We ARE 32° Scottish Rite Masons!

You asked for it, and it’s here!

The Hauts Grades Academy (HGA) is open and anyone interested can Sign up here to add your name to the wait list as additional classes are available.

HGA is free to all Scottish Rite, NMJ members in good standing. New registration will open as soon as possible. Join the wait list and we will keep you up to date.

HGA is a program designed to promote the education, knowledge, and engagement of members in the Scottish Rite, NMJ. The Scottish Rite was known as the Hauts Grades in its early beginnings.

The program is made up of three challenging levels:

What Happens In Level One?

Level One – The candidate will delve into the ritual of all twenty-nine Scottish Rite, NMJ degrees

Continue To Level Two

Level Two – The essay portion of the curriculum will allow for self-reflection and review of Scottish Rite degrees selected personally by the candidate.

Continue To Level Three

Level Three – A written research paper on a topic of the candidate’s choice, which will be pre-approved and reviewed by the HGA committee. Research topics can vary between history, ritual, and the philosophy of the Scottish Rite.

Completing HGA

At full completion, the graduate will earn the honor of becoming a Hauts Grades Academic, and will be entitled to include the letters HGA after his name. A certificate and HGA jewel will be awarded upon completion, but an enriching educational experience is the overall goal.
