Lipscomb Academy is not only an enjoyable environment and a comprehensive community but also a family filled with love and respect. Going through the difficult transition from one culture to another, the teachers and students at the academy welcomed me with warm hugs and offered me so much help. Despite my family far from home, they embrace me into the school and make me feel like I have an even bigger family here at Lipscomb.”
