One of the strengths of Baylor School is a wealth of programs,
services, systems, and, most importantly, people whoare focused
on every student's success. These include an adviser program,
the Peer Support Network, a Study Skills Department and its Peer
Tutoring Program, the Baylor Writing Center, professional school counselors, a school psychologist, and learning specialists.
There are still more resources – the library, college
counseling, the chaplaincy, the Leadership Baylor program, and academic prefects serving the
boarding program –
that bolster student success.
Additionally, the Upper School, Middle School, and Sixth Grade programs
address students' needs in age-appropriate ways, and one-on-one
extra help sessions with faculty are built into the schedule at
each grade level. David Padilla, the dean of Baylor's 11th and 12th
grade, sums it up this way: "A school the size of Baylor is able
to offer a huge variety of programs. In some schools, this support
isn't necessary simply because students don't have many options
in the first place. Baylor students do."
