Lee Academy, a college preparatory school, provides an educational environment of excellence with high academic and behavioral standards. The vision of Lee Academy is to build the bridge to each student's future by nurturing the growth of the student with regard to individual needs and abilities in an atmosphere of warmth and caring and to develop strong character in each student by teaching principles of self-discipline, respect for authority, patriotism, a love of learning and reverence for God.
Lee Academy believes that the overall purpose of education is to develop students physically, intellectually, morally, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. We believe it is the responsibility of the school to guide, discipline, counsel, and instruct students so that their capabilities and interests develop to an optimum degree in order for them to take their places in society as responsible adult citizens. The student also shares in the responsibility for his education by his participation, cooperation, involvement, and hard work.
The Mississippi Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accredit Lee Academy. Lee offers K-3 through the 12th grade and welcomes students currently from Coahoma, Tunica, Quitman, Tallahatchie, Sunflower, and Bolívar counties.
We welcome you to Lee Academy and invite you to become a member of our family.
As you can see we have completely redesigned our website. Our new site allows us complete control to add new content at anytime and from any computer.
Some of the new features include photo galleries for student activites and events, as well as, photo galleries for all sports. We invite parents and students to send us your digital images of Lee Academy events. We do require that all images have a descriptive name, i.e "JH boys track 21" and that you resize your images to a maximum 640 pixels wide. Images should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Another feature is two online calendars, one for academic events and the other for sports. These calendars allow you to subscribe to one or both and choose to be notified of events by email, text message or both. Email notification will be sent 24 hours prior and text messages 1 hour prior to the event.
The map to the school has also been updated and allows visitors to easily map their drive to Lee Academy.
We encourage our alumni to sign up for our special email message list by going to the ALUMNI section, click on REGISTER FOR EMAIL MESSAGES and fill-out the form. You will not be flooded with email but periodically we will send mesages about important events or activities at Lee Academy.
Another feature that is available is LIVE Internet broadcasts. We now have the ability to broadcast over the Internet virtually every school event, both at home and away. All that is required is an inexpensive camera, a laptop, an Internet connection and a volunteer. Events that are broadcast LIVE are immediately archived on the server and available for playback at anytime from any computer and in some cases your Smartphone. This can be a great fundraiser with real value to the sponsors.
