Ben Lippen Stories

The Danford Family

Why did you choose Ben Lippen School? Quality education anchored in a Christian Worldview by caring educators and like-minded families from diverse backgrounds

What campus do your children attend and what makes that campus unique and special to your family? Monticello Road. Our three children attend the same campus which allows them to walk in together, see each other at recess, chapel, & other events, play together in extended care, and leave school together. At times, he and his siblings get to see their cousin who is in the high school. The campus is also close to our home and workplace.

Has Ben Lippen School lived up to your expectations? We love our children’s educators. We have been impressed with the quality of the curriculum and how our children’s minds are stretched academically and spiritually. Teachers were able to quickly pivot their instruction to quality online programming amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic and provided opportunities for our children to stay connected with their teachers and classmates.

How has Ben Lippen helped your children thrive? Beyond the challenging curriculum, the children are bathed in scripture and the Gospel of Christ daily. This affects their behavior at home and the lens through which they see the world. They’re encouraged to think analytically as evidenced by the questions they bring home and the experiences they share. Their thirst for knowledge, especially the knowledge of Christ, will serve them well in their journey towards and throughout adulthood.

What advice would you give families who are considering Ben Lippen? Parents have a lot of options when it comes to educating their children. Some are cheaper, some are more expensive. Some have nicer facilities, some have worse. Ben Lippen’s strength isn’t found in its recruiting and marketing department. Its strength is found in the cornerstone from which its walls extend…Christ Jesus. Ben Lippen, hands down, is the best Christian, private school option in the Midlands. It’s not watered down Christianity. It’s real, it’s authentic, it’s accountable. If you want your child challenged academically, athletically, socially, and, most importantly, spiritually, then you really only have one option: Ben Lippen.
