Ben Lippen Stories

The Granger Family

We are the Granger family. We have four children at BLS. Our oldest son Levi is in 4th grade, our middle son Jude is in 3rd and our twins-Gabe and Eliza- are in kindergarten.

What do you love about Ben Lippen School?
We have loved SO many things about Ben Lippen. We loved our previous school and had our rhythm there, but God made it abundantly clear that this was the path he had for our family. The thought of starting over and walking into a new community felt very overwhelming for us and our kids but we felt welcomed and embraced from the first time we walked in the doors to start the application process. The family feel and the open arms acceptance made the transition so much easier for all of us. The teachers are pure gold and love and pour into our kids so individually-encouraging them, pushing them to reach their goals, and modeling the gospel of grace. I also love how they go on several field trips so our kids get to experience learning through a hands on approach. Friday night football games are also a huge favorite in our house!

Why did you choose Ben Lippen for your children?
Our kids were previously in public school. We started looking into Ben Lippen after the pandemic so our kids could be in in-person school and have a steady routine. After the first email I sent requesting information, I got a phone call that day which made me feel so welcomed from the start. When we visited the school and felt the presence of God, we knew it was the place He had for our family.

In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experiences at Ben Lippen?
We have seen a huge difference in each of our kids since starting Ben Lippen. They have learned so much about Jesus and their faith has become personal for them. The kids memorize a new verse each week for their class and it has been so cool to see them store the word of God in their hearts. Each one has also grown leaps and bounds in their academics.

What is the one word your family would use to describe the Ben Lippen experience?

What would you tell other parents who are considering enrolling their children at Ben Lippen?
We never thought it would work for us to send our kids to private school but after experiencing Ben Lippen and how it has deeply changed their lives, we will do whatever it takes to continue sending them. You will be blown away by Ben Lippen and the way they pour into each and every kid deeply!
