"GOA helped to instill a sense of self-confidence that I have taken with me in every experience since graduating. At GOA, I learned to cultivate my interests and pursue my passions."
— Noa S. ‘15
Our students savor the joys of painting, singing, musicianship, acting and dance, and they generously share these talents with the Golda Och community — and the community at large — through frequent performances. GOA offers a strong arts program led by teachers who are professionals in their field, bringing real-world experience into their instruction. Multiple elective periods throughout the year allow students to explore different art forms. Our small class size allows for individualization of instruction and one-on-one time with each student.

Arts education begins in the youngest grades when students use theater, music and dance as a kinesthetic means of learning Hebrew and other subjects. 
 
Guiding our many efforts in the arts, an active student-run Arts Council works to promote programs as well as produces Arts in Action Night, the culminating arts event of the school year. 
 
At GOA, an exceptional arts program is a further expression of our integrated cross-disciplinary philosophy of education.
