Organized to build on a solid foundation from our elementary school, the academic program in the Lee-Scott Secondary School is designed to equip our students for success in college and in life. The curriculum is grounded in mastery of knowledge in English language, mathematics, social studies, physical and life sciences, and foreign language. Mission appropriate elective classes are offered in Leadership, Christian Principles (including Dave Ramsey Finance) and Bible/Health.
Our emphasis is on core curriculum and reflects the type of preparation the nation's top colleges and universities seek in their applicants and students. This preparation involves quality instruction offfered in a supportive environment that demands the establishment of consistent work habits.
Technology is utilized by faculty and incorporated into all aspects of the curriculum. Each seventh through twelfth grade student is required to have an iPad (minimum specifications: iPad 2, 16GB with WiFi). A mobile laptop cart equipped with MacBook Air labptops is available for use in classrooms. The Secondary School technology center has recently been upgraded with new PC desktops and the latest Microsoft Office Suite. It is our belief that exposure to multiple platforms is in the best interest of our students' preparation for college and career.
