Our Students

Lee Academy students are curious, internally motivated, self directed, independent learners who think outside the box. They enjoy a challenge and love learning. Our graduates do well at universities and colleges throughout the country. Our values of respect and compassion prepare our students well for the future.

Our Campus

We have created a responsive learning environment at Lee. The natural setting of our campus, with its open spaces, trees, grass, lake, garden and animals, promotes a mode of relaxation and reduction of stress. We have several outdoor classroom areas around our campus and an outdoor theater area which is used throughout the year for performances.

A Personalized Approach

All students are different and learn and develop in different ways. At Lee Academy there is no “one size fits all” approach. Our small class size permits our teachers to get to know students as individuals, to find out about their talents, interests and passions. This enables us to individualize curricula to enable students to progress at a faster rate.
