Lee-Scott Academy named Apple Distinguished School

Posted: Updated:
Lee County, Al. - Technology has been used to enhance learning in Lee-Scott Academy classrooms for a number of years, but the iConnect initiative has taken the school  to a whole new level as the students are using these tools to connect, discover and explore our world.

When the Board of Trustees paved the way in April of 2012 for the students to be on the leading edge of 21st Century learning with their approval of the “iConnect to Excellence” technology initiative, students in grades seven through twelve began the 2012 school year with iPad 2s in hand as we launched our 1:1 BYOD iPad program. This year, the 1:1 BYOD iPad program has expanded to include sixth grade. But all LSA students are on a new journey in their academic lives as the use of iPads, iPods, and MacBook Air laptops has been introduced into all classrooms across campus.


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 the school's 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," said Don Roberts, Head of School.
