Howe Military School

5755 N State Rd 9, PO Box 240, Howe, IN 46746

The school was made possible by a bequest of John Badlam Howe, who provided in his will for the foundation of a school to train young men for the Episcopal priesthood. The military program was instituted in 1895 and, since 1920, Howe has had a high school ROTC unit sponsored by the Department of the Army. Female students were admitted beginning in the fall of 1988. Howe emphasizes spiritual, intellectual and physical education in a structured environment. The campus houses two separate schools: a junior high school (grades 7 and 8) and a senior high school (grades 9-12). The junior high provides a standard curriculum consisting of English, reading, mathematics, science and social studies; eighth graders may enroll in an elective class for high school credit. The college preparatory high school course of study includes units from the fields of English, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign language, physical education, health and computer education, supplemented by electives in the fine arts, the industrial arts and business. The mandatory JROTC program provides classroom instruction, physical training, and practice in conducting parades and ceremonies. The military department also sponsors a drill team, a rifle team and an adventure group. Cadets must participate in sports, either organized or intramural, and attendance and participation at worship is a required part of the school program.
