Harmel Academy is a unique school. As you consider whether this is the right place for you, please keep these things in mind:
- Our first program is directed toward modern manufacturing and shop environments (machining, hydraulics, robotics). We will be developing a program for construction trades (plumbing, electrical, HVAC) in the near future.
- While academic demands will be different than a traditional liberal arts college, we have high expectations for a student’s performance in all areas.
- Our unique collaboration program with local shops includes a work commitment by students during the two-year program. Students who plan on continuing to live and work in the area after graduation will naturally be given preference.
- As part of a student’s discernment, we recommend visiting a few modern professional shops and seeing what the work environment feels like. All work environments are unique, but in general the environment should “feel right” to the student, and he should be able to imagine himself working there. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
