The Learning Center


Inspiring all students to achieve their greatest potential!

"After only a few days of coming to the Learning Center, I became more comfortable with answering questions in class and was proud of my work when I turned it in to my teachers. The Learning Center is an amazing judgment free zone where any student is welcome to come and get help on things they struggle with while gaining the life skills of helping others around them." - Baylor student -

Baylor has always been dedicated to providing a college preparatory academic program that engages, challenges, and inspires our students to achieve their greatest potential - at Baylor and beyond.

The Baylor Learning Center embodies the best of learning philosophies and stands as a place where students can seek academic support in any subject area at anytime. The Learning Center staff meets with approximately 150 students a day, from a senior taking four AP classes to a freshman struggling in Algebra I.


In the Learning Center, a student can work one-on-one with a trained tutor on:

  • Math, English, History, Foreign Language, Science, Arts
  • Organizational skills
  • Effective study habits
  • Interpreting assignments

Located on the second floor of the Hedges Library, the Learning Center is open to students during any free time or Study Hall throughout the day, and is available to the boarding community evenings (8:00-10:00) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
