The World Olivet Assembly has acquired the 55.35-acre Howe Military Academy campus in Indiana as educational facilities.
The New York-based World Olivet Assembly, an evangelical Christian denomination, purchased the property at 5755 IN-9, in Northeast Indiana from the Howe Military Academy, formerly a private, co-educational, and college preparatory boarding school.
The previous Howe campus will be used as educational facilities for the World Olivet Assembly, which consists of an international assembly of churches and Christian ministries, and owns additional properties across the country.
Thanks to the former Academy, the new campus is already equipped with many amenities, including a chapel, a campus manse, student residences, dining hall facilities, administration offices, academic classrooms, and recreational facilities.
World Olivet Assembly also plans to move forward with maintenance and campus enhancement projects.
At full capacity, the World Olivet Assembly will have room to accommodate 400 students at the new location, with faculty and staff to increase appropriately in parallel.
The World Olivet Assembly is aiming for a 2020-21 start date, once the necessary authorizations are finalized, including COVID-19-related approvals for educational institutions.
The first students to arrive will be a cohort affiliated with World Olivet Assembly to give the administration flexibility in the event of a public health emergency mid-year.
The World Olivet Assembly leadership is thankful to the former key staff of Howe Military Academy for their warm welcome and looking forward to working with the local community.
