Open Enrollment

Open Enrollment Continues!! There are still seats available at Alee Academy! We would love to have the opportunity to work with your student. If he/she is falling behind in their credits, struggling in their classes, or need a boost in their GPA, we are here to help! Because of our smaller population, we have the ability to provide more one on one help. Don’t wait until it is too late. Let us help your child reach their potential - sooner rather than later.

Please stop in and pick up an application today! Our office is open Monday - Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Fridays 8:00 a.m. - Noon. You can also visit our website for an application. Alee Academy is a fully accredited, tuition free, public charter high school.

Upcoming Events

To celebrate National Pepperoni Pizza Dat* we are going to order pizza on September 20th. Buy “pizza by the slice” for $1.00 each.

We want to Welcome the Colors of FALL with a “Camo Clothes” day on September 30th. Students may come out of the normal Alee dress code and wear their favorite camouflage clothing. Outfits MUST be appropriate for school and in compliance with LCS dress code requirements.

Field Day is coming! On Thursday October 3, our second session students will enjoy some fun & challenging field day activities! Friday, October 4th, session 1 students will face the same challenging field day activities. We hope this will give students a reminder that being active and having fun does a body good!

Bring Your Best Smile! Fall picture day is scheduled for Tuesday, October 8th. All students will be photographed by our amazing friends, Griffith Photographers. Official Senior photos will be taken in March. We are asking our students to “Dress Your Best”. This is an opportunity to come out of Alee dress code but as always, clothing must be appropriate for school and within the parameters of the LCS dress code.

We are so happy to announce that our students put in a lot of effort during the FSA retakes. We are excited to see the results of their hard work in a few months.

We will begin our fundraising with our annual spaghetti & meatball dinner. All meals include garlic bread, a small salad and a cookie. Drinks are available for an additional charge. Meals are available to be picked up at Alee Academy between 5pm and 7pm on Friday, October 18th. Tickets are only $10.00 per meal. We have sold out early in the past so please get your tickets fast! They can be purchased from any of our students or staff members.

We are always seeking help from the community to fill our food pantry. Many students have received help in the past because of the generosity of our community. We have been able to supply our students and their families with food when they needed it most. If you would like to help, please contact Ms. Emerick by email [email protected] or at the school 352-357-9426.

Our Annual Title 1 meeting will be held on Wednesday September 18th in our student success center. Please see our website for our Title 1 family and parent engagement plan. We are excited to be a Title 1 school again this year and are looking forward to providing more opportunities for our students because of the resources available to us through Title 1.
