A wide variety of clubs and activities are available to all students at Golda Och Academy. Clubs provide a forum for enrichment, student leadership, creativity and collaboration. All our clubs are student led, and faculty advisers work closely with club members to set goals, plan activities and publicize students’ achievements. Students have the opportunity to explore individual interests and develop their unique talents. Many students choose to participate in multiple clubs. Leadership opportunities are available for students in all grades.
Golda Och Academy also offers at least one Shabbaton experience per year for students in grades 8-12. There are grade-level Shabbatonim, a Leadership Shabbaton and an All-High School Shabbaton. These Shabbatonim provide wonderful opportunities for students to bond with their friends, enjoy Shabbat in ways that are new and exciting and create some long-lasting memories.
