Affording Baylor

Did you know?

As you’d expect, a Baylor School education requires a significant investment. For the 2017-18 school year, Baylor tuition is:

Day Tuition $23,980
Boarding Domestic $48,842
Boarding International $52,430


How do I arrange a campus visit?

Brochures and websites are helpful, but there is no substitute for a visit to obtain first hand knowledge of a school. Please call our Office of Admission at 423-267-5902 to schedule an appointment.

What is required to receive an admission decision?

The official campus visit, main application, teacher recommendations, a personal recommendation, school transcript, and ISEE test results. The steps and deadlines involved in our application process are outlined in the admission packet and on this website, but your child will need your assistance and guidance along the way. Our admission counselors are also available to assist throughout the process.

Who makes the final decision?

We strongly encourage parents of children entering grades 6-8 to make the final decision of which school your child will attend. In the case of students applying to the upper school in either the boarding or day programs, the majority of parents agree on the list of schools to which the student will apply, allowing the student to make the final decision. With older children, it is vitally important to understand each other's expectations before applying.

Does Baylor give scholarships?

The only scholarships available are for a select number of highly qualified boarding students through our Distinguished Scholars Program. Otherwise, the assistance Baylor offers is need-based financial aid as determined by the school and Student Services (SSS). Baylor's financial aid is designed to supplement family resources to allow qualified students to enroll who would not have been able to do so without the school's assistance.

Is there any sort of financial aid available?

Each year, Baylor offers need-based financial aid to make its educational experience accessible to qualified students, regardless of their socio-economic back ground. To receive information about financial aid, please check the appropriate box on the admission application, or call the Admission Office at 267-5902. Requests for financial aid information will not affect admission decisions.

Must I repay this award?

No. A financial award is used to offset the cost of your child's education.

Besides athletics, what can my child do after school?

There are a number of activities a student can participate in to satisfy their after school requirement. We offer theatre, dance, art, robotics, community service, and outdoor adventure through our Walkabout program. The options are explained in detail on this website.

How much financial aid may I expect to receive?

Each award is individualized, based upon the financial need of each applicant.
