Application Process

Five Simple Steps

List of 5 items.

  • 1 - Visit our campus

    Please contact us to schedule an individual tour - it's the best way to get to know GOA!
  • 2 - Fill out the application

    Our application is available exclusively online, and we are here to assist you in the admissions process from your first visit through the submission of the application. If you need assistance with the application fee ($125) please contact us.
  • 3 - Provide requested documentation

    Requirements vary by grade and may include prior school records, assessments, letters of recommendation, and a graded writing sample.
  • 4 - Schedule your student assessment or student visiting day

    Our goal is to insure that GOA is the right academic fit for each student. Student assessments and visiting days give us a snapshot of each prospective student, providing us additional information to determine success in our unique program.

    For more information, contact Sari Allen in the Admissions Office at or 973-602-3645.
  • 5 - Admissions Decisions and Enrollment

    Once an admissions file is complete, it is reviewed by our Admissions Committee. Depending on your application (priority consideration, general admission) GOA will begin notifying families starting in mid-January and ending in mid-March. We look forward to getting to know you, working with you throughout the process, and helping you make the decision that is best for your family.
