Evangelical group opens educational facilityJune 25, 2020
By The Associated Press
FORT WAYNE — An evangelical organization is opening a faith-based educational facility at a Indiana location that was once a military academy.
Last week, the New York-based World Olivet Assembly announced it had bought the 63-acre campus in LaGrange County, The Journal Gazette reported Wednesday. Howe Military Academy, which was open for 135 years, said it was closing last year due to budget shortfalls, rising costs and declining enrollment.
“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,” the nonprofit posted on its website.
Terms of the sale were not immediately available, but the Associated Press reported last July that the campus was listed at $4 million.
Representatives of the organization could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
The campus could serve up to 400 students, and classes could start this year, according to its website. But that depends on “necessary authorizations” and “COVID-19-related approvals for educational institutions.”
