A ROAD LESS TAKEN.
For too long, young men have been given too few options after high school: either commit to four years of college, join the military, or find work while you figure out your life all on your own. Harmel offers a different path.
A BETTER WAY FORWARD
Harmel Academy is a Catholic, residential, trade school for men. At Harmel, a young man is trained in a skilled trade, schooled in a robust humanities curriculum, formed spiritually through a life of common prayer, and is prepared for excellence by living in an intentional community.
BECOME A SKILLED MAN
In either a two-year or one-year skilled trades program, a Harmel man builds confidence, thoughtfulness, and excellence for life, all while developing high-demand skills for his career.
Not your granddad's trade school
Any man who joins the Harmel community as a student must understand: this isn’t a typical trades-training program. Harmel is designed to form the whole man, and therefore it requires much of each man, specifically in four areas: prayer, work, study, and community.
“I’ve been able to see a lot more value in myself. I was almost able to watch myself blossom into a man. I’ve done things I would have never in a million years done before.”
