Core Values



Welcome from the Head of Schools

In 1946, Second Baptist School established a five-day traditional school to provide biblical instruction and learning where students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 could grow academically, spiritually, physically and socially.

In 2020, Second Baptist School expanded its offerings in Christian education. Beginning fall of 2021, three Second Baptist School University-Model (SBSUM) campuses launched at North, Cypress and Memorial campuses. Two additional schools opened in the fall of 2023 at Second Baptist Church’s West and 1463 campuses. The SBSUM campuses are distinctively classical and packaged within a university-model, designed to educate students two to three days a week on campus. The remaining days are satellite learning at home.

SBS partnered with Pam and Beau Dollins to launch Second Baptist School University-Model. Beau is a 1998 graduate of SBS, and he and Pam are 20-year church members. They are the founders of Paratus Classical Academy, an established university-model school in Houston, now SBSUM-Memorial. 

Second Baptist School University-Model is committed to developing a biblical worldview in students across educational programs, including academics, arts and athletics. Upon graduation, we expect your child to possess the character, knowledge and skills to succeed in college and beyond. This happens through grounding our philosophy of education in God’s Word and hiring faculty and staff who love God, love students and pursue excellence in their craft.

As you discover more about SBS University-Model, I hope you will take time to meet our students and their families, speak with faculty and staff and see firsthand what makes our community one of a kind. I look forward to welcoming you to campus!
