Award Opportunities For Rising 6th, 7th and 8th Graders

For the 2022-2023 school year, there will be awards available for Middle School aged students.
Golda Och Academy is pleased to announce our Middle School Excellence Award for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who demonstrate excellence in the values on which our school was founded. Each of these values is described on our webpage. We ask applicants for this award to choose one of these values and explain its sources and significance in their life together with a letter of recommendation from a professional (i.e, Rabbi, teacher, coach).
All students who wish to apply for an Excellence Award must compose an original essay of about 500 words exploring the sources and significance of a GOA mission value that they feel they exemplify. This essay, together with a letter of recommendation from a professional (i.e, Rabbi, teacher, coach), must be submitted along with the admissions application for new students by June 17, 2022, or for current students by May 2, 2022. Please complete this form to begin the award application process. Current GOA students, once we have submitted your interest form you will receive instructions for submitting your Excellence Award application. Recipients will be selected by the Awards Committee.
