The Niles Bolton Middle School at Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School is a unique community where adolescents are cherished, valued, challenged and inspired.
Our small, tight-knit community of around 100 students keeps class sizes small and promotes caring relationships between students and faculty. The entire student body gathers weekly for chapel and regularly for all-school events and activities. Lunch is served family-style each day, and students have the responsibility of serving, setting tables, and cleaning up. In today’s technological age, we teach soft skills and values that students will carry with them for life.
The college-preparatory curriculum includes classes in humanities, world languages, and science with a variety of fine arts and physical education electives. Students work one-on-one with teachers during tutorial times. Our Middle School program helps prepare young people to be bright citizens and successful Upper School scholars.
The Niles Bolton Middle School Complex resides in a separate building on 13 dedicated acres -- complete with a stream for outdoor exploration. Students not only benefit from the fresh mountain air and pastoral beauty, but they are also allowed the freedom to grow and gain their independence in a safe and middle school-centered environment.
