Pro-bono students are any high school students who are pregnant or parenting, the children of parents of low income, and either the first in their families to attend college, members or former members of the United States military, or underrepresented minorities. Pro-bono students qualify for free college consulting services. If you are interested in working with Lee Academia or know someone who is, please use the contact form to inquire about pro-bono services.
At Lee Academia, we believe in equal educational opportunity. As such, we offer our services pro bono to a number of particularly promising students from traditionally underrepresented geographic areas.
We believe a college education is critical to a student's success; however, many students do not have access to accurate information and quality admissions counseling. In an effort to address this and give back to the community, Lee Academia offers pro-bono services to selected students who will benefit from the guidance and admissions expertise provided by our counselors. We provide pro-bono counseling opportunities for domestic students in 11th and 12th grades.
To be considered for a full pro-bono program, please submit your application no later then February 1st of the Junior year. Applications will still be accepted after that date, however, you will not be eligible for full services. All information will be reviewed only by our executive team and be held in the strictest confidence. Families who wish to apply for our pro-bono counseling should submit the following information:
Cover letter explaining reasons why student would benefit from Lee Academia counseling
