Governor Holcomb Visits Howe Military Academy
On Friday, October 5th, Indiana’s 51st Governor, Eric J. Holcomb, visited Howe Military Academy. Governor Holcomb arrived on campus around 11:30 AM where he was greeted by HMA staff members and VIP guests from the surrounding community inside the Howe Mansion.
Governor Holcomb was originally scheduled to see a Howe Military Academy parade, but rain caused the parade to be cancelled. Instead, Governor Holcomb was given a brief tour of the historic St. James Chapel by the academy president, COL Thomas Tate, USA (Ret).
Members of the HMA faculty and staff posed for a photo with the Governor inside the chapel before he proceeded to All Saints Chapel for a Q&A session with Howe Cadets.
Before entering All Saints Chapel, Governor Holcomb watched from outside as the HMA Corps of Cadets marched into the chapel to the beat of the drums. (read more)
Ready for what lies ahead
Howe Grammar School was formed in 1884. It’s mission was to prepare young people for the road ahead by equipping them with knowledge, faith, and the confidence to lead with undaunted courage.
Today, Howe Military Academy is a private, co-educational, college-preparatory boarding school for grades 7-12. We strive to help young men and women of all nationalities and faiths find their way in uncertain times. We remain committed to the vision of our founders. Armed with strong moral character, critical thinking, and exemplary leadership skills, we believe there is nothing Howe cadets cannot achieve.
Learning for the Future
The academic success of each cadet is planned by taking a team approach to learning. With an average class size of eight, Howe provides the individual attention cadets need to explore and find the learning style that works best for them.
Life Beyond the Classroom
A rich and well balanced cadet life includes a comprehensive athletic program that builds both a strong body and a student’s self confidence carrying with it varying degrees of honor and responsibility representing Howe and the cadet corps.
Faith & Honor
Bound by our unwavering belief that all young people benefit from a structured environment and an opportunity to mature in an understanding of faith, our motto “Fides et Honor” is the guiding principle by which our Corps of Cadets must abide.
Building Firm Foundations, One Cadet at a Time.
We all hope for the best for our children – especially when it comes to their education. We dream of them seamlessly transitioning from primary to secondary school and “fitting in” immediately. The reality is the move to secondary school is a paradigm shift that can be overwhelming for some.
That’s why we have spent over 130 years perfecting our educational model so we can make life at Howe as predictable and stable as possible for your child. Our fusion of military training and educational rigor for grades 7-12 helps students feel cared for while demanding respect, self-discipline, and academic excellence. This has prepared more than 5,000 young men and women for success after Howe.
