Admissions Process – Step by Step

List of 5 items.

  • 1 - Schedule a virtual meeting

  • 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. The application fee is waived for early applications (before November 15th) using the code ROADRUNNER.
  • 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 virtual student assessment

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

    To schedule for the Lower School (Pre-K through 5th) contact Mara Suskauer, Director of Admissions, Lower School (973-602-3757) msuskauer@goldaochacademy.org.

    To schedule for the Upper School (6th - 11th) contact Micah Dov Gottlieb, Director of Admissions and Enrollment Management (973-602-3645) mgottlieb@goldaochacademy.org.
  • 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.
If you are applying for Financial Aid, your Financial Aid application must be done concurrent with your application for admissions
