Ben Lippen seeks to glorify God. This is true in our mission statement, but more importantly, it is true in our hallways, classrooms, and playgrounds. We believe that to best accomplish this, we are to partner with parents in the education of their children.
Ben Lippen Lower School offers students the opportunity to grow spiritually, academically, and socially during their formative elementary years. Teachers are equipped to help students grow in each of these key areas as they cultivate a love of learning within the students.
As we recognize an ever-changing world around us, we seek to prepare students in ways that enable their ability to succeed in the walk of life that God has called them. We teach our students that they are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and designed for a purpose (Jeremiah 29:11). With this understanding, we encourage 21st century thinking through an emphasis on collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity (commonly referred to as the 4 C’s).
It is our desire to assist families and students as they grow and develop through these foundational years. Should you have any questions or would like to meet, please do not hesitate to call or stop in. I would love to answer any questions you may have and to show you how God is working in the lives of the students, faculty, and staff at Ben Lippen Lower School.
