The Rabun Gap Athletic Program is both competitive and inclusive.  The small size of our school means that everyone who wants to participate in athletics generally can.  In an environment where all students are encouraged to get involved, you will have the opportunity to learn and hone your skills to develop a competitive edge in a way you wouldn’t in a larger program.
