  • Spiritual Life

    at Rabun Gap
    Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School has roots in the Presbyterian tradition but welcomes and embraces students from all religious backgrounds.

    Our Chapel program is one of the oldest traditions at Rabun Gap and emphasizes fostering the Christian faith. Led by our school Chaplain, the Chapel program strives to encourage all of our faculty, staff, and students in the development of their spiritual growth. Our goal is to cultivate a compassionate campus so that we might, in turn, send students in the world with service and love. Students are encouraged to help shape our chapel topics and assist in leading the worship services, which reflect the love of Christ Jesus.

  • Weekly Chapel Services

    Students and faculty gather in their separate divisions each week for chapel on Thursdays. On special occasions, the entire school comes together for all-school services. Boarding students attend a brief chapel service on Sunday nights.
  • Service Activities

    The Chapel program partners with other school clubs to organize regular school-wide service projects that unite campus together around a common cause. Past projects have included collecting donations for Bahamas Hurricane Relief and local charities. 
  • Religious Dinners

    The Chaplain, along with other faculty members, hosts meals for our non-Christian students on the major holidays of their religious traditions. These programs are important pieces of campus life and allow all members of the community to learn about different faiths while creating an inclusive environment for students from all religious backgrounds.  
  • Pastoral Care

    Our Chaplain is always available to support all students, faculty, staff, and Rabun Gap families.
  • Religious Studies Requirement

    Upper School students take a Bible and world religions class as a graduation requirement.
