Lee Academy is known for its strong sense of community, which is fostered by students spending time together.
Boarding students and local students quickly make friends as they hang out after school and participate in activities. Extracurricular programming at Lee Academy promotes the growth of the whole student. We offer a wide variety of activities, in addition to athletics, including: academic clubs and teams, social and civic participation, the arts, outdoor activities, and opportunities to serve the local community.
For students living on campus, there are weekly trips to go shopping and weekend trips to Bangor, a larger town, which serves as a center for shopping and entertainment for Northern Maine. In the warmer months, there are opportunities to visit our local lakes or Maine’s scenic ocean coastline. In the winter, there is a small downhill skiing and tubing hill within walking distance of our campus. There are local field trips throughout the year, including trips to the movies, sporting events, art museums, and college campuses. There are also occasional trips to Portland and Boston to take part in cultural activities. These trips are open to local students when space is available.
