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.

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!
