The Williamson family joined our Falcon family community in 2012 when their older daughter was in 3rd grade. They went on to enroll their younger daughter in Pre-K4 in January of that same school year. The Williamson girls are now in grades 5 and 10. Allison shared with us why they chose Ben Lippen School.
What do you love about Ben Lippen School? I love that it is Pre-K-12 and my children will transition to the different levels with the same group of friends. I love knowing that my kids are spending the majority of their day with kids that come from families who share the same values and beliefs as we do. I love that the teachers are constantly showing Christ to our kids and they genuinely care for them.
Why did you choose Ben Lippen School for your children? We visited several of the Christian schools in Columbia and after touring BL, there was no comparison. The school year had already started when we moved to Columbia in 2012 so we were in a rush to get our daughter in school. We took a tour and couldn’t get our paperwork done fast enough.
In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experiences at Ben Lippen School? From Pre-K forward, the students are memorizing Bible verses every week as a part of “hiding God’s Word” in their hearts. The bible stories are taught not only as a source of information but as a way to see the sovereignty and holiness of God in the world and in their lives. Our children are learning that we don’t just do God and religion on Sundays but that He is present in every aspect of their lives, every day.
What is the one word that your family would use to describe the Ben Lippen experience? Home
What would you tell other parents who are considering enrolling their children at Ben Lippen School? It is absolutely worth the financial investment and sacrifice that we make to send our kids to BL.
