Tallulah Falls School is a private boarding and day school located in the town of Tallulah Falls, Georgia, United States, within Habersham and Rabun Counties. The school is located on a wooded campus in Northeast Georgia on the southern slopes of Cherokee Mountain at the foothills of the Appalachian chain. The school was founded in 1909 by Mary Ann Lipscomb of Athens.

The school is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]

In the fall of 2014, TFS opened its expanded and renovated upper school academic building.[3] On the same day as the dedication, school officials broke ground on a new gymnasium project on the middle school campus. The $4.5 million structure is slated for completion in the fall of 2016.[4]
