The main purpose of the Schools of Instruction is to learn the Masonic Ritual. University Lodge No. 51 is in Masonic District B and uses the Temple School of Instruction; however, brethren may receive a dispensation from the District Deputy Grand Master to be certified at another school. The other school most commonly used by our Lodge is the Jenkintown School of Instruction. Information regarding these two schools can be found below.
