School Notes

  • Baylor's mission is to instill in its students both the ability and the desire to make a positive difference in the world. All of us - students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, donors, trustees, and friends - embrace that mission. Baylor graduates have various levels of preparation in leadership: academically, emotionally, physically, ethically, and competitively. While our programs are rigorously demanding, they are offered in a supportive and positive learning environment. In addition, our champion athletic teams give plenty of cause for celebration and build Red Raider pride. Theatre productions, Walkabout outdoor program, community service, Honor Council, the Dorm Council, and dozens of clubs and organizations forge friendships that last a life time.
