How to Apply

At Baylor, we strive to enroll capable students who bring a wide variety of skills, interests and backgrounds to the Baylor community. Since we are a school that begins in the sixth grade, many of our day students attend their sixth grade year. A few more students are admitted each year in the Lower School (grades 7 and 8), and then additional openings are available for day students in the Upper School, which serves grades 9 through 12.

Applying to the Upper School is an attractive option for those day families who may not be able to afford tuition for grades 6-12, but are eager to take advantage of our SAT prep classes, full-time college counseling, a huge variety of AP courses, and other programs that give Baylor students an advantage when applying to college. Likewise, our boarding program begins in the ninth grade, but it is not unusual for boarding students to begin attending as sophomores or juniors to take advantage of our college counseling and other specialized programs geared toward academic preparedness for college and professional careers.
