Salem Witches’ Institute

Located in the United States (presumably in Salem, Massachusetts), this is a social organization for adult witches. Members attended the Quidditch World Cup in 1994 (GF7)

. The Salem Witches' Institute isn't a school, but a joke on the Women's Institute in the UK.

The Women's Institute in the UK is a volunteer organization for women which focuses on social activities, crafts, cooking, and good health (Wikipedia).
