Historically, Lee Academy has excelled in the teaching of Mathematics. This tradition continues today. The school offers challenging math courses at all levels and places consistently among the top math teams in Maine. Lee Academy is a fully accredited TOEFL exam site, one of only eight in the entire State of Maine. To enrich the ESL experience, international students are paired with an English speaking roommate when possible. Frequent trips and weekend activities give students practical experience with language use, as part of our belief in “guided immersion” in American English.

“I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being patient, understanding, caring towards me for the past year. The scholarship helped a lot in getting my visa. You sure do know how to do a brilliant work and if there is any way I could take a survey about your services at Cogito, I would give you a 10 out of 10.”
