In 1845, when Henry David Thoreau first went on his famous trip to Walden Pond a school was created in the North Maine Woods. A school that would change the lives of generations of students from the state of Maine and throughout the World.
This school is Lee Academy, nestled amongst the woods and waters of some of America's most beautiful natural surroundings. Lee Academy bestows its students with a quality liberal arts education with a focus on place-based, environmental, and outdoor instruction. Lee cultivates strong character and civic-minded citizens through its accepting, diverse community, athletic programs, extracurricular activities, and outdoor adventures!
Our Alumni have gone on to become leaders in industry and technology, artists and entrepreneurs, adventurers and conservationists. We provide a safe nurturing environment for you to discover your passions as we open doors to the World for you. We invite you to join us in our lovely hamlet in the woods and find your dream.
Come live deliberately.
Live Lee Academy.
