Athletics & Activities

Because exposure to new ideas, skills, lessons, and achievements is a valued part of the Baylor program, we offer a huge number of Upper School clubs and student organizations, various student publications, and more than 70 athletic teams.

All Upper School students are required to participate either in after-school athletics or an afternoon activity such as Community Service, Walkabout (our outdoor program), drama, dance, and organic gardening.
