The Mason family joined the Ben Lippen community in two ways this year: Mrs. Lil Mason started as our Middle School Administrative Assistant but is now our Admissions Director for Lower School, and the Mason children are in grades Pre-K3, 4, and 5. We recently asked Mrs. Mason to tell us a little about why her family chose Ben Lippen and how things are going so far.
What do you feel your children get at Ben Lippen School that they would not get somewhere else? My children are reaping blessings being a part of Ben Lippen School. Their teachers are daily pouring into them more than just knowledge and academic material. They are modeling and sharing examples from their personal walks with the Lord. I have seen my children’s faces light up as they tell me stories they have heard in the classroom. Ben Lippen School is reinforcing a Christ-centered lifestyle both at home and at school.
Our theme for this year is Thrive. How has Ben Lippen School helped your children THRIVE? The word thrive means to grow or develop well. My children have only been enrolled in Ben Lippen School since mid-August and I can already see them flourishing. They are stepping out of their comfort zones and rising to meet a new set of standards. The teachers and coaches are pouring into these young people day after day to ensure that they thrive and reach their God-given potential.
How would you share with others the value of the sacrifices your family has made for your children to attend Ben Lippen? Our years to teach and train our children are limited and fleeting. Our hearts are bent to give our children a Christian education that will equip them to be Truth-seekers in today’s world. I’m sure that the journey to partner in Christian education will at times be a sacrifice, so far it seems to be an absolute lesson.
What advice would you give families who are considering Ben Lippen School? Let the Holy Spirit lead you in your child’s education choices. He knows what lies ahead for each of us and He will guide you towards the path He has set for your family. Enrolling our children at Ben Lippen School has been one of the best decisions we’ve made.
