The Alabama Independent School Association is pleased to announce that Lee-Scott Academy is the recipient of the AISA President's Award for the 2015-2016 school year. The President's Award was established by the AISA for the specific purpose of recognizing member schools that achieve academic excellence during the school year and it is awarded to only one school per academic classification, which are based on student enrollment.

The criteria for winning the AISA President's Award includes achievement in all areas of school excellence such as: academic achievement, professional development, extra-curricular involvement, school improvement and other activities that celebrate excellence in education. In addition, this award also serves as a symbol of recognition to the individuals who have given unselfishly of their time to serve as President to the Alabama Independent School Association.

The AISA has been steadfast in its efforts since 1970 to maintain an organization of independently operated non-public schools that are rich in diversity, committed to academic excellence, and deeply concerned about the growth and development of students. The association's goal is to provide quality educational services and programs that ultimately serve to enrich the educational experiences of the students within its member schools.

Today, Lee-Scott Academy officially welcomes to campus a new Head of School, Dr. Stan Cox.

Dr. Cox has been an Alabama educator since 1986. After six years of classroom teaching experience and twenty-two years of service in building and central administration, he advanced to the position of Assistant Superintendent of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction. Prior to coming to LSA, he was the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction for Lee County schools and also served as the system's accountability coordinator.

We recognize and appreciate the years of service that Dr. Cox has given to the Alabama education community, and we are thankful that he is now a part of the LSA community and family.

Welcome Dr. Cox. We are glad you are a part of this new chapter in our school's history.

Fifteen students for Lee-Scott's Thespian Troupe attended the annual Alabama Thespian Festival January 15 and 16th on Samford University's campus. This was the first time our troupe had attended the festival and all had a fantastic time! Attendees were able to go to workshops and see productions by other schools. Our students also competed in individual events. The following students earned Superior ratings in their individual events:


Group Acting – Anna Lynn Starr, Austin Greer and Blake Whatley

Duet Acting - Mary Helen Miller and Chelsea Stroud
Costume Design – Emily Stone

Solo Musical Theatre - Sam Kinsaul


Not only did Mary Helen and Chelsea earn superior ratings, their scene was one of 20 acts chosen to perform in the student showcase. The superior ratings also earned the seven students an opportunity to attend the International Festival in Nebraska this summer. A very good showing for our first festival!


Congratulations, actors!

Auburn, AL – October 15, 2015 – Lee-­Scott Academy is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2015­2017. This is the second time Lee-­Scott Academy has received this award.

In 2012, Lee-­Scott Academy launched its iConnect to Excellence technology initiative to great success. Two years later, LSA looked to demonstrate and emphasize its advancement in technology integration by launching #iConnect2.0 ­ a technology refresher and much more!

#iConnect2.0 focuses not only on ensuring that devices, apps and infrastructure are up-­to-­date, but also on analyzing how teachers are integrating this same technology into instruction. LSA is aspiring to "teach above the line". This is in reference to the SAMR model developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, which provides a measuring stick for teachers to evaluate how they are incorporating technology into their instructional practices. Based on this model, LSA is striving to institute practices at the highest levels of technology use. Teachers are using technology to redefine learning practices by connecting with experts and classrooms across the United States and around the world. Students are benefitting from flipped classrooms, digital textbooks, and iTunesU courses developed by Apple

Distinguished Educators. Don Roberts, Head of School, states that "Increased student engagement is just one benefit we are seeing as our teachers continue to discover and implement ways to 'teach above the line.' "

The Apple Distinguished Program designation is reserved for programs that meet criteria for innovation, leadership, and educational excellence, and demonstrate a clear vision of exemplary learning environments. The selection of Lee-­Scott Academy as an Apple Distinguished School highlights its success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.

"At Lee­-Scott Academy we are working diligently to make our teaching methodology relevant in today's world. I am pleased that Apple has recognized our efforts." ­ Don Roberts, Head of School
