History

Lee’s Summit Academy was established in 2001 under its original name, World Revival Church Academy. What began as an educational center that used online curriculum, with an in class teacher, turned into our current three schools. From World Revival Church Academy, we named our school Libby Lane Academy, because we were located on the street of the same name. With the increased growth and notability in the community, we determined the need for one more name change to better suit the needs of our ever- growing community. Lee’s Summit Academy is an educational center that houses the Libby Lane Preschool, the Libby Lane Montessori and the Lee’s Summit Academy. We have the honor of servicing students from 18 months to 12th grade in our stand-alone facility. We are teacher facilitated environment that has a variety of electives, steady growth and a substantial and sustained growth. What started as a 2 room school, is now a 38,000 square foot facility.
