    to Lead the Way
Lead the Way - it’s what we do at Rabun Gap! Leadership is important in every aspect of campus life. 

At the Lower School, fifth graders serve as buddies to our youngest students. Middle School students can participate in student goverment and other leadership positions. In Upper School, opportunities to lead abound through our on-campus and community roles.

Student leaders set a positive example, support the student body, and represent the school in all school matters. We believe all students can be great leaders. Rabun Gap provides a safe space to learn the lessons of leadership and character.
