HOWE – According to an announcement from school trustees, Howe Military Academy will close after the current school year.
The announcement was made on the school's Facebook page by President Dr. Thomas Tate and Board of Trustees Chairman Phil Malone.
The school opened in 1884 serving young men and in beginning in 1988, young women.
The statement cited rising costs and declining enrollment over the last decade for making the operation and maintenance of the school unsustainable.
To ease the transition, Howe will provide support and assistance to all families, faculty and staff in making alternative plans for the next school year. All academic, athletic and extracurricular programs will run as scheduled through the end of the school year.
The Board of Trustees expressed gratitude to the community, individuals, families, foundations and corporations that gave selflessly and helped Howe serve its mission for 135 years.
