HS Academic Handbook
Grades 9 - 12
The Ben Lippen Academic & College Guidance department seeks to assist students and their families in discovering the unique calling God has placed on each student. Ben Lippen is comprised of a rich diversity of students with individual academic and career needs and goals. We offer a variety of courses and rigor in order to tailor each student’s academic experience. We believe all students are created in the image of God and are called by Him to steward their education in a manner that glorifies Christ. Our mission is to partner with parents as we serve students through academic and college and career counseling.
The Ben Lippen Course Catalog has been created to assist in the selection of classes and is designed to be used in conjunction with advising from the Academic Counselor, Director of College Counseling, and faculty. Students and parents should consider a variety of factors when selecting classes, including personal strengths and weaknesses, graduation requirements, goals for college and beyond, and time spent on extra-curricular activities. Students are encouraged to plan out the high school years in advance using the enclosed Graduation Requirements and Course Selection Guide by Grade. Contact the Academic Counselor with questions regarding academic guidance. Please note that classes are offered based on student interest and faculty availability.
