Baylor School’s vision, forged by 120 years of history, embraces the idea that we do not inherit the earth from our ancestors as much as we borrow it from our children. Our focus is on the future and the realization of each student’s singular potential while we conserve the extraordinary resources that make Baylor such a fabulous place to learn By empowering every student and faculty member on campus with leading edge technology, we’re minimizing our environmental footprint and maximizing opportunities to share the joy and excitement of learning. History, innovation, joy of learning… together they form the framework for Baylor School’s mission: to foster in its students both the ability and the desire to make a positive difference in the world. Just imagine where that kind of thinking can lead. Great care has been applied over the years to maintain and preserve 690-acres of land and turn-of-the century buildings that overlook the Tennessee River gorge. Notable features include: One of the few things that rivals our love of competition is the high standard of Baylor’s athletic facilities on our campus: In collaboration with the Tennessee River Gorge Trust, Baylor School students are becoming stewards of Williams Island – a 400-acre wilderness within easy rowing distance. The island is already the site for archaeology and ornithology projects as well as recreational pursuits such as camping and fishing. Baylor School also hosts an aquatic summer camp in partnership with the Tennessee Aquarium, funded by the National Science Foundation.
