Welcome to Rabun Gap!

The Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School website has been designed to answer most of your questions. Whether you're a prospective parent or student researching our curriculum, an alum wondering how your favorite team is faring, or a student looking for pictures from a recent school play, the website has been designed to provide fast and easy access to information about our school.

For those new to Rabun Gap, I would like to share some of the basic tenets that define our school. More than 100 years ago, founder Andrew Jackson Ritchie followed his dream to bring quality education to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the northeast corner of Georgia. Today, Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School is dedicated to serving a new century of learners while remaining grounded in the School's historic values of Work Study Worship. Mentored by dedicated and accomplished faculty members, our students explore their potential, knowing with confidence that the Rabun Gap Community supports them in their highest and most noble ambitions.

We challenge students to Lead the Way while investing themselves fully in a stimulating journey of education, growth, and discovery. Students discover and pursue their own passions, whether these are in academics, the arts, athletics, or in service to others  often finding simultaneous success in all areas.

We invite you to learn more about the amazing accomplishments of our students and this wonderful boarding and day school that supports students of diverse talents, interests, and backgrounds. Tour campus, meet teachers and students, visit a science classroom, cheer with us at a basketball game, or enjoy a performance of Cirque in the Rearden Theater.

The calendar is always full at Rabun Gap. I hope you take the time to get to know us  and let us get to know you.

Kind regards,

Anthony H. Sgro, Ed.D
Head of School
