Waverly Parkway, Opelika, Alabama

Scott Prep was named after I. J. Scott, Sr.  The land was donated by Dr. Jim Bruce.

Note: The following historical information was taken from the Lee-Scott Academy website. http://www.lee-scott.org/

Scott Preparatory School began as a dream--a dream of six men who believed that there should be an affordable alternative to the education offered through the government-funded schools. They had two main concerns--that the school emphasized Christian values, and that the education offered was of the highest quality. The men with that dream were Mr. I. J. Scott, Sr., Dr. Earl Fuller, Dr. Jim Bruce, Dr. Hugh Lane, Mr. Charles Ingrum, and Mr. Walter Rice, Jr.

Scott Preparatory School was established in 1970, and held its first registration in the old Farmer's National Bank building in Opelika, now Jackie's Card Shop. The school's secretary and bookkeeper was Mrs. Mary "Bobbi" Darden, who is still Lee-Scott Academy's bookkeeper today. She worked diligently during the spring and summer months of 1970 to ensure that everything in the office would be ready for the first day of school. During those same months, construction of the new facility was underway. The school's construction was funded by donations from the founders and parents of Scott Preparatory School. Mr. Walter Rice, Jr., and his construction crew worked tirelessly to finish the Scott Prep facilities by the fall of 1970. Parents and students also worked hard--painting, scrubbing, and planting grass. The school was located on Waverly Parkway in Opelika, and is now the home of ImageWare Technologies, Inc. LaMar Crawley was the first principal of Scott Preparatory School and there were five seniors in Scott Prep's 1971 graduating class.

In November of 1981, Lee Academy of Auburn and Scott Preparatory School of Opelika merged together to become Lee-Scott Academy
