- Lee Academy was founded in 1845 by strong-minded people who were determined to provide an educational institution for the growing region.
- We began as a school to train teachers for the many rural schools that dotted the countryside of eastern interior Maine.
- The traditions of academic excellence, attention to the needs of the individual student, and a knowledge of our importance to the region have guided the school in its changes and growth.
- Our classes, our guidance philosophy and our daily schedule are all designed to provide a course of study that is interesting, challenging, and uniquely "you".
- We work closely with every student to develop an academic program that instills self-confidence, brings new knowledge, prepares the student for college and allows the student to develop the skills that are essential for economic success in the world and personal fulfillment in life.
