The academic program in the Lee-Scott Upper School is designed to equip our students for success in college and in life. Our 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 preparing our students for college. This preparation involves quality instruction offered 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.
The top two academic recognitions awarded to graduating seniors at Lee-Scott Academy are the I.J. Scott Award and the Ben J. Kirk Award. The I.J. Scott Award honors an outstanding scholar-athlete, while the Ben J. Kirk Award focuses on scholarship and moral character.

In keeping with the college preparatory aspect of the school’s mission, Lee-Scott Academy offers its students the opportunity to take Advancement Placement (AP) classes. These courses are sponsored by the College Board, and are rigorous courses that demand additional investments of time, energy, and motivation on the part of the students.
