Ben Lippen Stories


My first experience with Ben Lippen was in middle school when I visited. I noticed there was something different about the faculty at the school. They were very caring and desired their students to succeed. After this visit, I told my parents that Ben Lippen was the place I wanted to be. This spirit was indicative of my high school experience as well. The people and relationships at Ben Lippen have been the most enduring qualities of the school in my life.

I am currently in Washington, DC, but keep in touch with some fellow alumni. One of the more impactful moments as an alumnus was going back to the school after four years of college at Clemson University. I immediately felt that same loving spirit that I felt ten years prior when visiting for the first time. I was able to speak with old faculty members and coaches who impacted my life. This loving spirit of relationships is what I remember most about Ben Lippen School.
