Adriel School, West Liberty, Ohio, is a child welfare school, established in 1957, capacity 37, sponsored by the Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities (Mennonite Church).

In 1979 Adriel School beaome more community focused. Expansion over the next 15 years resulted in five groups homes in the surrounding community. In 1981 the Treatment Foster Care program was started to place children with special needs with specially trained foster parents. In subsequent years foster care offices were opened in three other parts of Ohio. In 2009 Adriel School opened Harmony Hall -- a facility that provided 24 new beds for residential youth.

While the official name has remained Adriel School Inc., the ministry is actually a social service agency for children.
