Golda Och Academy students complete our rigorous and challenging High School curriculum in seven semesters. By the end of their seventh semester they have submitted their college applications, completed their academic requirements for graduation and chosen a last semester program.
Students choose between two programs—Neshama or Internships—for the second half of the senior year, after the college applications are submitted.
A kaleidoscope of options awaits those who choose to participate in the Internship program, a real-world work experience. Individual programs vary but may include job training in a field of the students’ choice (such as medical research, state or national government, non-profit work, law, advertising, communication, design, etc). Students who choose this option meet on a regular basis with their fellow students and faculty advisers to discuss their experiences, go on field trips and to maintain social contact.
