7th - 8th Grade
The Upper School of Lee-Scott Academy is focused on preparing our students for a productive and fulfilled life after graduation by providing students with a challenging academic foundation for success in both college and career. Our challenging curriculum is based on current research based standards that create a foundation of knowledge in each of our core classes of English, foreign language, math, science, and social studies. Students are encouraged to extend their learning beyond the walls of our classrooms by taking dual enrollment classes in addition to honors, pre-AP and AP classes.
Students in 7th – 8th grades utilize school owned iPads and students in 9th – 12th are issued school-owned MacBooks. As an Apple Distinguished School, we encourage using technology to support student learning allowing LSA to move away from the traditional structured learning and toward a more flexible, self-directed approach, where teachers encourage students to be more creative in their learning and can collaborate with peers in group settings.
In honoring our mission at LSA, our faculty and staff strive to create a learning environment that nurtures and develops Christ-centered values in our students. Teaching, leading and encouraging our students to understand the values of Christ and treating fellow students as we would like to be treated is a value that is central to our mission. As a school, we believe encouraging a strong faith in our students is also vital for us to foster.
The Upper School recognizes academic excellence of our students through numerous academic and performance honor societies. Students are provided many opportunities to participate in varied athletic teams or to participate in drama, chorus or art. With numerous opportunities including many club activities, our desire is for each student to find a place to contribute and become part of a meaningful group. Excellence is recognized in all areas of the arts, athletics and academics.
We value the trust placed in us when students choose to attend Lee-Scott Academy. Our students are why we do what we do. Each day our faculty strives to make a difference in the lives of our students.
