Meet John Baylor

John Baylor graduated from Middlesex School and then Stanford University. Tens of thousands of students have taken OnToCollege’s (formerly John Baylor Prep’s) in-person and online ACT® and SAT® courses.

John’s contrarian test-taking techniques have inspired students for more than two decades–improving scores, scholarships, and college choices. Used by more than 425 high schools in 23 states, OTC’s online classes routinely increase an entire high school’s ACT average score 1-3 points and SAT average score 50-200 points.

OnToCollege with John Baylor prepares thousands of students annually for the ACT® and SAT®, just one way that we help families and schools create two- and four-year college graduates with minimal debt.

John has authored several books, including the Eric Hoffer Award-winning “Reaching Higher: One Simple Strategy to Transform America’s K-12 Schools.”


John also hosts the weekly, half hour-long OTC Show on radio, podcast, and television.  His expert advice helps students, parents, and counselors find that ‘best fit’ college at the lowest cost.

Since 1994, John has been the radio voice of University of Nebraska Volleyball. John is also a father, husband, author, tennis player, and golfer.
