School Notes:

Established in 1934 to provide high quality education at a minimal cost, Lee College has continued that tradition for over 60 years. Originally housed on the Robert E. Lee High School campus, Lee College severed its initial integration with the Goose Creek Independent School District under the leadership of the college's first dean, Walter Rundell. In 1948, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools granted Lee College accreditation and recommended that the college develop its own campus apart from the local high school. A successful bond election in the following year allowed for the construction of Rundell Hall and the campus gymnasium. The college experienced tremendous growth after classes began in the new buildings in 1951. In 2000, another successful bond election led to expansion of the campus by more than 33% with the addition in 2002 of a new Advanced Technology Center, Library, and Tennis Courts. In 2003, the College occupied a new Wellness Center and Sports Complex. Parking was also expanded and beautification efforts including a central courtyard, covered walks, and landscaping were completed. Lee College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award Associate of Arts Degree, Associate of Science Degree and the Associate of Applied Science Degree. Lee College is also accredited by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Education Agency.
