Frequently Asked Questions

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q How can I possibly afford to send my child to private school?

    Rabun Gap offers financial aid and scholarships to more than 75% of our student body. We encourage all families to apply as some only need a little help while others need considerable assistance to bridge the gap between tuition and what they can afford.
  • Q Does Rabun Gap offer bus transportation?  If so, how much does it cost and when is the pick-up and drop-off?

    Yes!  Rabun Gap recognizes that accessible and affordable transportation is an important part of the Rabun Gap experience.  Each school year, we offer round trip bus service to Clarkesville, Tallulah Falls, Clayton, Franklin, and Highlands, provided at least one family requests the service.  The bus fee is $750.00 a year, per student.

    Bus Routes with possible stops:
    • Franklin - Franklin, Otto
    • Highlands - Bryson's Grocery, Highlands/Cashiers Hospital
    • Clarkesville - Downtown Clarkesville, Hollywood, Tallulah Falls
    • Clayton - Ingles

    Important considerations:
    • Exact pick­up and drop­off locations with times will be determined by community need and will be announced in the summer.
    • Express interest in this service using the online registration forms sent to you from the Admission Office each summer.
    • Participants are billed over eight months.

  • Q What is the earliest I can drop off my student with an 8:45 start time?

    You can drop off your children at the Lower School as early as 7:30 AM.
