Ben Lippen School Reviews
My son's first year at Ben Lippen School has been amazing! From our initial visit, the presence of God was evident, with the students and faculty. Our son is receiving a Christ-centered education from a faculty that exhibits daily how much they care about his development: academically, spiritually, and socially. If we chose one word to describe Ben Lippen, it would be family. Observing how students, parents, and the staff interact, genuine care and love is evident. The peace we feel knowing our son is at Ben Lippen is immeasurable. He is being prepared for success, while living a Godly life. Send your child(ren) to Ben Lippen will be the best decision you make; it has been for us!
Ben Lippen is a Christ-centered school with high academics. Our family is very pleased with the education. In addition to the challenging curriculum, we love how the faculty and staff pour biblical truth into our children. They pray for, and pray with the students on a daily basis. They also have a strong athletics program and fine arts program. With 100% college acceptance rate, 2016 SAT scores averaging 1390 (in the top quartile) and 20% of the 2016 seniors receiving the Palmetto Fellow, they ARE preparing the students. This year we had 5 National Merit Finalists! I highly recommend Ben Lippen!
This is our first year at Ben Lippen and we could not be more pleased. We've loved everything about it! The faculty and staff are engaged and committed to helping students learn. The Ben Lippen community is so genuine and welcoming. They have an extensive curriculum that is Christ centered, focusing on intellectual, spiritual and character development. It is big enough to offer lots of sports & extra curricular activities but small enough to fell like family. We had been in the most sought after public school in the area since coming to Columbia 6 years ago. But the move to Ben Lippen has been the best investment we've ever made. I wish we had started both our girls here 6 years ago.
