Our children have a Christ-centered, highly academic setting to grow and develop students both spiritually and academically. Lipscomb invests its time and resources in their teachers so my children can have the best. Teachers invest their time and resources in my children in classrooms as well as extra-curriculars. We are so pleased.

As a result of the curriculum, great teachers and environment, my child has excelled beyond my expectation, both academically and spiritually. The environment at the school is very conducive for learning and expression, as well as inclusive of people from all backgrounds and faiths. The teachers truly care about the development of all the children and go above and beyond to make sure the children are excelling. I would recommend Lipscomb Academy to anyone who is searching for a place for their children to be loved and grow academically and spiritually.
