Thank you for your interest in Ben Lippen School!
Founded in 1940, and originally located in Asheville, North Carolina, Ben Lippen is a Scottish phrase meaning “Mountain of Trust.” Today, Ben Lippen is a Pre-K3 to 12th-grade Christian school of over 900 students on two campuses. Our commitment to academic excellence, spiritual discipleship, and engaging co-curricular activities is evidenced by 100 percent of our graduates gaining college acceptance and earning $6 million in renewable college scholarships including National Merit, Palmetto Fellows, LIFE, and Hope Scholarships.
Ben Lippen is accredited by the Council on Educational Standards and Accountability (CESA), Cognia (formerly AdvancED), and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and is a member of the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA).
But at the heart of Ben Lippen are the faculty members and their unwavering commitment to your student’s success. Sixty percent of our faculty have obtained, or are working toward an advanced degree, and each one serves as a club sponsor, coach, or advisor giving them the opportunity to invest in your student’s life outside the classroom. Most importantly, every teacher has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
The decision of where and how to educate your child is among the most important and most difficult choices you will make. Numerous articles and books have been written on the subject, but for most families, it comes down to answering this question: “Is Ben Lippen a convenience or a conviction?”
