Whether it’s been months since you walked across the stage at your Ben Lippen graduation or years; a day student or a boarding student; educated on the mountain in Asheville or at the highest point in Columbia – we are thrilled to consider you part of the Ben Lippen School community! Since 1940, Ben Lippen School has provided over 4,000 alumni with the spiritual, academic, and social training necessary to make a difference for Christ.

While our graduates go on to serve around the world, a Ben Lippen education is the common thread that binds their stories together. We invite you to reconnect with former classmates, share personal updates, and reacquaint yourself with Ben Lippen as we continue assisting the family and church in equipping students spiritually, academically and socially under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It is our goal to discover ways to support our alumni community by providing an avenue to help our alumni to interface with one another.

Connect with us on Facebook

We now have a Facebook page dedicated to Ben Lippen graduates like you! Please give us a “like” at Facebook/BenLippenAlumni. The Facebook group, the Official Ben Lippen Alumni Association, will still be operational, but the page provides greater flexibility in sharing. Join us on Facebook today!

Endless possibilities abound!

The Alumni Office is DREAMING BIG for changes in the near future, and everything is on the table. Ideas range from a Hall of Fame, a quarterly e-newsletter, an alumni directory, smaller, more frequent targeted events, more trips to the mountain, and better engagement with our current faculty, staff, and students. At the same time, Ben Lippen has expanded its capacity for collecting and maintaining information, which is going to help make all of this possible.

We need your help to get started. Beyond basic contact information, we want to hear about life events (such as degrees, employment, weddings, births, deaths), career, military, and ministry updates, awards and distinctions, as well as testimony related to what God is doing in your life. Click here to share your information and experiences with us.

If you want to take a larger role or simply share your ideas, I’d love to hear from you! Contact Margaret Chase at or call (803) 807-4144.
