Howe Military School faces decision on closing

Howe — A northern Indiana military school could be closed this summer unless it can raise $2 million in time to keep its classroom doors open.

Howe Military School's administrator says the private school's board will vote June 2 on whether to close the 130-year-old school about 45 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.

Northern Indiana Episcopal Bishop Edward S. Little II tells The News Sun the school has been operating at a loss for several years. Little chairs the school's board.

The school was founded in 1884 as a preparatory school for men seeking ordination in the Episcopal Church. It became a military school in 1895.

Currently, the school has 76 students.
