Wisdom. Awareness. Connection. Adventure. Reverence. Honor.

These are the virtues of WildWise School. Each virtue represents a Guild within the school, and each guild is represented in the Mark of WildWise. WildWise is made up of six unique, but interconnected Guilds:

  • The Crofters Guild, the spiral located in the center, are represented by Wisdom.
  • The East arm is The Rangers Guild and Awareness.
  • To the South, The Bards Guild and Connection.
  • The Voyagers Guild is to the West represented by Adventure.
  • The Mystics Guild is to the North with Reverence.
  • Protecting it all, shown with the outer circle, is The Champions Guild and Honor.

Each guild learns the responsibility of serving and protecting their realm through service work in their communities. Students are encouraged to pick a primary Guild of focus, but are free to participate in any Guild they wish, and earn Marks of Achievement in any of the core skills each offers.
