The School of Eight Initiates is part of the otherworld landscape of the West. It is a school created by the Four Gods to educate people on their worship, as well as establish relationships among young spirits so they can become better engaged in the West. In mythic and fiction stories, it can act as a setting for high school and college-like stories.

The School is at times referred to as the School of Four Initiates and School of Six Initiates, indicating the number of gods at the time.

Some spirits in the West choose between attending the School or entering the Temple of the Fathers when they come 'of age'. Most spirits that enter the Temple of the Fathers are not Otherfaith spirits, with few notable exceptions.
