Our logo is the sun rising up from above the name of the school. The sun symbolizes many different things to different people. Understanding a few of the things our logo means to us will help you to know more about our school.

Each day the sun rises. With each sunrise comes a new opportunity to work toward our dreams. The sun of our logo is a reminder that at Lott English Academy we are all on the path to our dreams and that with every day we have the opportunity to make choices that take us closer to our dreams. By joining Lott English Academy, you are stepping onto the path of reaching your English language goals. It feels great to be moving toward your dreams, and the sun in our logo represents our students committing with each new sunrise to studying English and to moving daily toward—and finally reaching—their dreams.

The sun is also a symbol of the unconditional light we aim to give our students. As a student at Lott English Academy, you will experience being unconditionally respected and appreciated as a person. This acceptance of all people creates the foundation of trust that is necessary for a classroom to be effective. The light of this unconditional acceptance is another reason for the sun in our logo.

Lastly, the sun rises each day as a new beginning, and with improved English skills you can make a new beginning for a better life.

For all these reasons and more, we feel the sun is the perfect logo for our school. Lott English Academy is a privately owned school that was created and is operated by Leslie Lott McAlpin. The school is named after Ms. McAlpin’s father, Dr. James Lott, a life-long educator and a light to all who know him.

Before opening Lott English Academy, Ms. McAlpin actively took on roles in school administration as both academic director and school director from the year 2000 onward, always with the goal of one day opening her own school.

Ms. McAlpin was born in the USA and began teaching English in 1989. She has lived and taught in Asia and South America as well as here in the United States. Over the years, she has taught all levels of (and different skills within) English and has worked with students from around the world. Ms. McAlpin has won several teaching awards for her dedication and skill as an educator. Additionally, she has presented at numerous conferences, is a teacher trainer and IELTS trained examiner, and regularly consults in the field.

We look forward to talking with you in the near future, and we wish you the best of luck in reaching your English language dreams. Contact us to enroll today!
