The Holton family joined our Falcon family community two years ago when the older two children were in first and fifth grade. All three children are now at Ben Lippen in grades Pre-K4, 3, and 7. Mandy has just recently taken over as Lower School PTF president at our Monticello Road campus. When the Holtons were a new family, Mandy shared with us why her family chose Ben Lippen School.
What do you love about Ben Lippen School? the biblical worldview foundation that is taught in every subject area
Why did you choose Ben Lippen School for your children? It is our desire for our children to gain knowledge in all fundamental areas which are rooted in the truth of God’s word. We wanted to know that what our children are being taught is the truth. We didn’t want to spend our evenings “undoing” what they were taught at school. We love knowing that our children’s teachers spiritually train them up in the same way we do at home. We are able to rest in knowing that while they are at school, we are being supported in the foundations and beliefs that we teach at home.
In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experiences at Ben Lippen School? They are hearing the Word of God throughout their day at BLS and we know that faith comes by hearing. We are new to Ben Lippen but have already seen small ways that their faith is being strengthened through what they are taught in the classrooms and in chapel.
What is the one word that your family would use to describe the Ben Lippen experience? Intentional
What would you tell other parents to encourage them to consider enrolling their children at Ben Lippen School? I would tell them of the great teachers we have been blessed with. I would also tell them how our children have been challenged academically as well as spiritually, not just in head knowledge but also in their hearts.
