Ben Lippen Stories

The Wood Family

Why did you make the switch to Ben Lippen School? We were looking for a school that provided a Christ-centered education through faculty and staff that understand the world we live in and would love our children through that process. We quickly saw that through our tours and many discussions with the BL family.

Was there anything specific about Ben Lippen that influenced your decision to come here? On our tour at Open House, one of the coaches and teachers greeted us; he was telling us about the school and different programs they offered when he said, “your kids aren’t perfect and they’re gonna mess up and they will probably even do things you’re very upset with; we make it clear to them that we are no different and what is most important is that when they fall to temptations, they have someone they know they can come to and we’ll then have an opportunity to teach.” That may have been the moment but there were many other great impressions!

What grades were your children in when you made the switch? 5th, 7th, sophomore and senior

What campus does your children attend and what makes that campus unique and special to your family? MR, it’s private and just far enough from the chaos of town.

Has Ben Lippen School lived up to your expectations? Was there anything that pleasantly surprised you? Completely, pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the sports coaches

How has Ben Lippen helped your children thrive? Our senior truly hated school; she is now sad to be graduating! She now understands how great and fun school can be.

What advice would you give families who are considering Ben Lippen School? When you’re ready, call and schedule a tour, but you’re gonna be completely blown away by the attitude and environment so be prepared to make the change!

What do your children like best about Ben Lippen School? Friends, sports, teachers that love them and of course the included cafeteria so they don’t have to take lunch!
