At Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School, diversity is more than a catchphrase - it's a way of life.
A Global Perspective
Students at Rabun Gap have the unique opportunity to experience interactions with their peers from all walks of life. Our diverse and vibrant campus sets us apart from most independent schools in the United States.
With a population including students from 40+ countries and 15 states, Rabun Gap is a special place where people come together. But it’s not just that. We’re empowering community that embraces our differences.
Students in Lower, Middle, and Upper School gain global perspective through cultural education and experiences. It’s all about preparing our graduates for life outside the idyllic mountain community of Rabun Gap, where they will LEAD THE WAY in college and beyond.
A fourth-grader spends time with his Reading Buddy from the Bahamas. In an Upper School history class, students from Asia, Europe, The Caribbean, and the mountains of Northeast Georgia discuss the American Revolution. Middle school students have dinner in the dining hall with a faculty member and her family from New York.
The Rabun Gap community is the world in one place.
Our unique community is a space where everyone is valued and respected. At Rabun Gap, you’ll encounter people from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds living, working, worshipping, and learning together.
"In Mexico, I only studied about other cultures. Now I can hear 20 different languages just in the dining hall. It's really amazing."
- Hazel, Mexico
"All cultures are welcome here. We have a lot of activities, like International Week, to embrace our diversity. For me as a Chinese student, being able to celebrate Lunar New Year with all my friends from all around the world really makes it feel like home."
