In the spirit of developing a healthy, well-rounded individual, we offer a full range of athletic opportunities for students. Traits of character development, sportsmanship, a competitive spirit, and teamwork are the focus of our programs.
Beginning in fourth and fifth grade, B-team football and basketball programs are available. Junior varsity and varsity football, basketball, baseball, softball and volleyball programs are offered. The Academy sponsors tennis and golf teams as well.
Intramural basketball and Saturday middle school programs round out the curriculum.
Due to recent growth in enrollment from the Timmonsville, Lamar and Hartsville area, safe and economical bus routes have been created to assist parents with transportation. The students meet at centralized stops where the buses pick them up in the mornings and are dropped off in the afternoons.
Socially, Lee Academy offers many clubs and activities for student development and enjoyment. Several local clubs and organizations sponsor on-campus activities throughout the school year. Student Council, Yearbook Staff, Anchor Club, First Priority, Environmental Awareness Club, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) comprise the majority of on-campus extracurricular offerings.
