6th Grade Academy

The Lehigh Acres Middle School 6th Grade Academy aims to provide a smooth transition while nurturing our 6th grade scholars through this critical period. Our Academy builds a foundation and offers support with common organizational strategies and structures that will allow them to be successful in Middle School. The Academy was established to provide the opportunity for a more supportive instructional environment and is designed to meet the needs of our scholars by supporting their physical, emotional, social, and cognitive changes.

Our 6th Grade Academy is a “school-within-a-school.” Lehigh Acres Middle School is the first middle school in Lee County to adopt this concept. Our Academy allows our 6th graders to have a team of core instructional teachers that work together and plan for your scholar’s success. Each hallway dedicated to the 6th Grade Academy will only serve 6th grade scholars, they will also have their own lunch period.
