I absolutely loved my experience at Rabun Gap! Been boarding there since I was a freshman and I always felt supported by the teachers and students. Most of the teachers I've had have been great and very supportive, even when I haven't been the best in their class. Very easy to be involved in various clubs, sports, and activities. The facilities are fantastic, I personally am very fond of the Arts and Theater building. Very easy and necessary to find friends. The dorms are great, especially the senior dorm. The food is better than most but has its off days occasionally. The only complaints I have are that headmaster cares more about reputation than the students and the school could use a bigger place for students to hang out at during their free time.

Great school! Faculty eat, sleep, and live with students, developing lifelong relationships. Small class size and excellent academics and extra-curricular) make Rabun Gap the best boarding school in the south. And the area -- wow! Nestled at the southern tip of the Appalachian mountains, the scenery provides a great environment for learning and playing!
The best thing about Rabun Gap is the physical diversity of the student body. With the small community, the environment if very family-oriented, and that then allows for the community to be close, and the students to be friends with everyone. Rabun Gap is a place where people can come from completely different backgrounds and create a friendship that will last a lifetime. Where friendships form in the most unlikely places, where you leave your normal, your home, to come to a place that becomes your new normal, your new home. Rabun Gap is a place of love, and definitely recommend it.
