The boarding experience at Rabun Gap is both energetic and relaxing. It provides students with increasing responsibility for their personal, academic, and social lives under the nurturing guidance of Rabun Gap residential faculty. These uniquely dedicated adults live in dorms with students, supervising our residence halls and weekend activities. They become extended family, opening their doors and sharing their families, their pets, and their hearts with Rabun Gap boarding students. Great care is taken to aide students in developing effective study habits and social skills that will allow for meaningful relationships with adults and peers.
Seven residence halls serve as a home away from home for our boarding students, who make up approximately 50 percent of Rabun Gap's student population. Residential life includes many planned weekend activities, and the halls have amenities such as computer rooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, vending machines, and common areas.
Our sprawling campus offers a range of activities, from swimming and canoeing at Indian Lake to enjoying a movie under the stars. When the weather is not quite as accommodating, students are treated to off-campus events including Movie Trips and Mall Trips. Spending weekends on campus is a wonderful way for students to bond outside the classroom doors, and we encourage any and all students to participate.
