What do you feel your children get at Ben Lippen School that they would not get somewhere else? A faith-based education with faith-based teachers who love their students.
Our theme for this year is Thrive. How has Ben Lippen School helped your children THRIVE? I’ve seen my third grader thrive most in his academics. He just started Ben Lippen School in January and was a little behind when starting. I believe he has thrived because his teacher is constantly encouraging him along the way. She has given him so much grace because he came mid-year and due to this, he has learned a lot about what grace is and how it feels. My girls are in the middle and high schools and have thrived because they have been in person doing face-to-face learning for most of the year and would not have been otherwise.
Which campus does your children attend and what makes that campus unique and special to your family? Monticello Road campus… It is special to our family because all three children attend the same campus and often see one another during the day.
How would you share with others the value of the sacrifices your family has made for your children to attend Ben Lippen? I’ve watched my children grow in ways that I didn’t expect when we first started. I think they have grown most in their faith through their Bible classes, weekly chapels, and amazing teachers who are so encouraging. I’ve watched them grow in their friendships through being able to play a variety of sports and take part in activities after school, and I’ve watched them grow in their academics by being challenged but also given grace when they make mistakes. I think that being in a loving Christian environment like Ben Lippen and feeling the love and care from teachers really encourages students to want to do well.
