Baylor was established in 1893 and has become one of the country’s premier coeducational college-preparatory schools. We provide as much variety in our activities and extracurricular offerings as we do within our robust academic program, that offers students an outstanding college preparatory curriculum and selection of advanced studies. Baylor students are encouraged to follow their passions and achieve their true potential. Few schools can match Baylor’s boarding life. Our beautiful 690-acre campus is located on the Tennessee River just five minutes from Chattanooga’s vibrant downtown, and an easy two-hour drive from Atlanta, Nashville, and Birmingham. The beauty of an expansive riverfront campus, first class academic and residential life facilities, and a network of passionate faculty members create a deeply connected, vibrant school community.
Baylor’s Science Facilities & Research Program is supported with an endowment to ensure the most advanced program possible, allowing our students to conduct college level research. MaxPreps rated Baylor as the #3 Athletic Program in the country, with well over 100 alumni currently playing in college.
