Ben Lippen Stories

Family Spotlight: The Easterling Family

As written by Bruce Easterling


“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2)

These wonderful words have always encouraged us as parents in educating our children. So, when we looked to transition our children from homeschooling to traditional school during high school, Ben Lippen provided a welcoming environment that continued to foster a love for learning with a Christian worldview. We were impressed with how the teachers and coaches showed a keen desire to know each of our children. They wanted to not only prepare their minds for the next chapter in their lives but also shape their hearts to focus on things eternal.

Our oldest two daughters, Seabrook and Simmons, have thrived at Ben Lippen. With all the various activities and class assignments, they have learned valuable skills in time management. In addition to building healthy friendships with classmates, the family groups have expanded our daughters’ relationships across grades. They have learned that Bible study is not independent from academic rigors, but complimentary of one another. In addition, our family has been blessed through hosting international boarding students during holidays.

If you are looking for a school that seeks to develop your child’s heart as well as mind, we would strongly recommend considering Ben Lippen. While every school aims to produce good students, Ben Lippen uniquely equips students with Biblical wisdom and academic knowledge to walk worthy of their call.
