Lee-Scott Academy’s current enrollment of 659 is the highest student total in school history. With this growth, Lee-Scott has begun planning for future expansion to ensure improvement in the overall experience for students, teachers and parents.

Independent School Counsel (ISC), an Atlanta-based educational consulting firm, has been retained to assist with LSA’s plans for potential growth. ISC helps independent schools develop master campus plans by looking 5 to 20 years into the future to predict what academic programs, faculty and technology might be needed.

ISC is “the Southeast’s leading independent consulting group and one of the fastest growing school resources firms in the United States,” according to Lee-Scott Headmaster Dr. Don Roberts. He said Lee-Scott has wanted to bring in the kind of help that ISC is providing before this year, but now seemed an ideal time.
