A Rabun Gap Education

Lower School adds a Pre-K 3 Program

Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School is excited to announce the creation of our Early Learning Center which will include the addition of a half-day PreK program for three-year-olds. 

Starting in the 2021-2022 academic year, the Evelyne Sheats Lower School will launch the Early Learning Center which will serve Pre Kindergarten children ages 3 and up. The Early Learning Program is designed to prepare young learners for kindergarten and beyond.

“We are incredibly excited to offer a Pre-K 3 program at Rabun Gap to serve our surrounding communities,” said Head of School Mr. Jeff Miles. “The Early Learning Program was the vision of our Head of Lower School Ms. Renee Rogers and reflects the growing success of our Lower School that opened in 2017. We can’t wait to welcome these young learners to campus and prepare them for a strong start to their academic journeys.”

The Early Learning Program implements an innovative, child-focused approach, that incorporates choice-based learning, social-emotional wellbeing, and school-readiness. The Early Learning Center will be housed in its own dedicated area at the Lower School. Early Learners will be a part of the Evelyne Sheats Lower School and have access to many opportunities beyond the classroom including a full slate of Encore classes with PE, art, and foreign language exposure; spiritual development through the chapel program;  access to Rabun Gap’s 1,400-acre campus; and cross-curricular and cross-divisional learning opportunities.

“We are delighted to serve families and young learners through the expansion to Pre-K 3.  Our faculty members are so excited about this program which will nurture and grow creativity, kindness, confidence, and preparedness in our youngest learners,” said Rogers. 

Applications for the Early Learning Program, starting at age 3, are now open. Parents interested in applying for the 2021-2022 year can learn more at our website:
