The Words We Live By

2023 Slideshow - About


Developing Leaders

We require students to consciously consider and develop their leadership potential. Rather than singling out only the top students - our goal is to reach out to all students and help them discover and develop their emerging leadership skills.


Respect for All

We foster an environment where students learn the valuable social skills of cooperation and mutual respect – something they will need to succeed in today's world.


Academic Rigor

Demanding academic courses are the heart of our program. Curiosity and hard work are expected of all students, and a high level of academic performance is the norm. Baylor students are surrounded by peers who value academic achievement and a faculty whose main aim is to help students achieve it.


Individual Potential  

Our extremely talented faculty are able to see the individual potential of each child and encourage them to participate in a broad range of academic, artistic, athletic, and extracurricular activities.



We believe that each student's moral and ethical strengths lie in their intentions and actions. It is through dialogue and accountability that students build their character and are inspired to make a positive difference in the world.


Honesty Always

Each boy and girl who enrolls at Baylor School must sign, and live by, the Baylor Honor Code.

Our Values

The Honor Code

The Baylor Honor Code has been the cornerstone of our values since 1916.

The code provides a structure within which students come to appreciate honesty, mutual respect, and their word as their bond, while helping them gain independence and responsibility. To establish these expectations, each boy and girl who enrolls at Baylor must sign, and live by, the Baylor Honor Code.
