Preparation at Each Stage

My husband, David and I enrolled all three of our children at Ben Lippen School three years ago when our family moved back to Columbia, after living in Miami and St. Louis. Relocating multiple times has given us a unique advantage to experience several school environments. We are thankful that God has settled our family here in Columbia and brought us to Ben Lippen School where we are surrounded by a community of believers. David and I feel that it is a unique gift to raise our children alongside of other like-minded Christian parents and families. A blessing I believe that will produce eternal rewards far greater than we can currently see.

I enjoy the perspective we have right now with our children being enrolled in each level of Ben Lippen – elementary, middle and high school – and I see how each stage prepares our children for the next level of independence and spiritual maturity.
