The Baylor School admission process is all about finding the right fit. You need to feel that Baylor is the right school for you, and we want to feel that you will do well while you’re here. To help all of us make the determination, we have designed an admission process that is informative, comprehensive and, we hope, hassle-free.

Each applicant to Baylor is assigned an admission counselor who will guide you through the process, and you should feel free to contact your counselor any time you have a question.

Whether you are applying to middle school or upper school, boarding or day, we will request information about past and present academic performance and personal interest. You will be asked to visit campus and participate in a conversation with an admission counselor, and you will be asked to submit scores from a standardized test.

If you would like more information about Baylor before applying, you can request an information packet by filling out an inquiry form or by calling the admission office at 423-267-5902 or emailing us at admission@baylorschool.org.

We go out of our way to make the admission process enjoyable for prospective students and their families. So take a deep breath, relax, and get started whenever you are ready.

Choosing a School

A Checklist For Your Visit

Catalogs and websites are helpful, but there is no substitute for a campus visit to obtain firsthand knowledge of a school. To make the most of your visit, you should consider the following:

  • Is there enthusiasm among students and teachers?
  • Are students attentive in classrooms?
  • Are there adequate facilities for technology, the library, and science?
  • Does the school want what is best for my child?
  • Does the school place an emphasis on extracurricular activities that are interesting and challenging?
  • Is there a caring environment?
  • Does the school share my values?
  • How much freedom do students have at each grade level?
  • Is the campus safe?
  • Are the grounds well-maintained?
  • Does the school encourage parent involvement and clearly outline what is expected of parents?
