Welcome to Tallulah Falls School

Tallulah Falls School is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school serving more than 400 students in grades 6-12. Academics and character development are at the heart of Tallulah Falls School. The quality of the college-preparatory program and the success of students are priorities that form the foundation for the school. A dedicated and highly-qualified faculty, outstanding facilities, a broad and challenging curriculum, small classes, and eager, motivated students all contribute to the accomplishment of academic and personal goals.

Tallulah Falls School is nestled on a wooded campus built on the southern slopes of Cherokee Mountain in Northeast Georgia. Only 90 miles from metropolitan Atlanta, students experience an atmosphere that not only fosters academic excellence but also encourages an appreciation for nature and the preservation of natural resources. Tallulah Gorge State Park, with its interpretive education center, hiking trails and scenic vistas, provides ample opportunities for students to hike, camp, and cycle.  Whitewater rafting, horseback riding and snow skiing are all located nearby and offer students the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature. Weekend excursions to Atlanta allow students a chance to visit world-class museums or to attend plays or professional sporting events. Class trips in the sixth, seventh, eighth and 10th grade greatly expand each student's worldview.

Tallulah Falls School is accredited by Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS).

We are a member of: Georgia Independent School Association, Georgia High School Association,  National Association of Independent Schools, National Association of Secondary School Principals, Secondary Schools Admissions Test Board, NAFSA, GAIE.
