How does 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry expand on the degrees I received in my Blue Lodge?

32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry™ presents an interpretation of the lessons of Blue Lodge Masonry through 29 Scottish Rite degrees - - the 4th to the 32nd. The degrees are allegorical dramas that touch both the ear and eye and explore the great truths that Freemasonry professes. The degrees also delve into the organization's six Core Values: Reverence for God, Integrity, Devotion to Country, Justice, Tolerance, and Service to Humanity.

The 29 Scottish Rite degrees journey deeply into the questions raised in the three Blue Lodge degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellow Craft and Master Mason. 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry™ is often considered the “graduate course” in Masonic teachings because our degrees supplement and reinforce the Blue Lodge in every way.

We also encourage our members to continue their education of 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry™ through our Hauts Grades Academy, a curriculum that provides an opportunity for deep study of all 32 degrees. HGA graduate testimonials cite finding greater enlightenment and meaning from our Masonic teachings through the course.
