"Having both a secular and Jewish education at GOA really helped prepare me for college as well as life after college."
Shira K., Class of 2011
Thank you for your interest in Golda Och Academy! At Golda Och Academy, we nurture the unique potential of each student through our exceptional Jewish and general studies programs. Our students are engaged, encouraged, and inspired by our challenging dual curriculum and develop a love of learning and a deep commitment to Jewish values. While our students come from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds and from over 60 communities, when they come together at GOA it feels like a family! Wherever students start their GOA journey, Pre-K through High School, they are welcomed into our warm and nurturing community by our outstanding faculty, administration, students and families.

At Golda Och Academy, we take ample time to review each application and get to know the “whole student.” Depending on the grade and corresponding admissions requirements, we look for learners who have had demonstrable academic success, and we gauge this through an interview, a review of grades and test scores, and teacher recommendations. As you find out about us, we encourage you to ask us questions.

We offer information sessions, generous affordability programs, and a transparent and accessible admissions process for applicants from Pre-Kindergarten through the Upper School. Our applications are available exclusively online, and we are here to assist you in the admissions process from your first visit through the submission of the application.

We look forward to taking the next step with you as you explore the educational opportunity available at Golda Och Academy. Please contact us to schedule an individual tour or to sign up for one of our upcoming information session - it's the best way to get to know GOA!
