A New School Year!

We are excited to begin the 2015-2016 school year at Ben Lippen!

If you are new to the Ben Lippen community, WELCOME! And if you are a returning member of the Ben Lippen family, welcome back! We desire for every member of the BLS community to feel connected and "in the know" with activities on campus. Stay informed by checking out our online calendar!

Mark your calendar to attend our annual Parent Night and Volunteer Fairs! This is an opportunity for parents to become acquainted with their child’s teachers and schedule. It’s also an opportunity to (re)acquaint parents with Ben Lippen policies and procedures, and to showcase opportunities for parent involvement.

St. Andrews Road Lower School - August 17

Upper School (6th-8th) - August 18

Monticello Road Lower School - August 20

Upper School (9th-12th) - August 25

And be sure to make plans for our first varsity home football game on Friday, August 21! You won't want to miss this unique time of community fellowship.
