Strategic Plan

In Spring 2019, Golda Och Academy adopted a five-year Strategic Plan informed by over 500 members of the community – including students, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff.
Together, we have identified nine core priorities and charted an ambitious course to fully realize our vision of becoming a student-centered institution with an impact that extends well beyond our GOA family and local community.
