Our Leadership Academy Prepares Students By Teaching, Coaching, And Mentoring Your Child Within A Structured, Supportive Environment.

Life-Changing. Learning.

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.

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.
