Applying to Howe Military Academy is easy through our online admissions portal. Once you have an account setup you will be guided through an application checklist which covers your applicant’s academic history.
Howe Tuition Assistance
Paying for a quality private boarding school education can be difficult and for many families requires the pooling of money from multiple sources. Most often these funds will come from family savings and earnings, loans, and through assistance provided by the school.
Howe awards need-based tuition assistance to families who cannot, through their own resources, cover the full cost of school.
We also offer a sibling discount to families who enroll a 2nd child. The discount only applies to the second child’s tuition costs. Award amounts are $2,000 for full-boarding, $1,500 for 5-day boarding, and $1,000 for day students.
Indiana Choice Scholarship Program
Indiana is committed to providing all children access to quality educational opportunities, no matter where they live or how much money is in the family bank account. Indiana’s Choice Scholarship program gives Hoosier families the opportunity to send their children to a school that best meets their learning needs. A Choice Scholarship, or “voucher,” is a state payment that qualifying families can use to offset tuition costs at participating schools, such as Howe Military Academy. Students qualify based on total household income and the amount of the scholarship corresponds with the public school corporation in which the student lives.
This exciting program is available to Indiana residents that apply to Howe Military Academy. NOTE: this year’s application deadline is September 1, 2017. Howe Military Academy will work with the parents to submit applications and enroll students. Parents should explore the documents at the website listed below for more information.
