Located in West Orange, New Jersey, Golda Och Academy is an accredited private independent school, educating students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in a flexible and caring environment that nurtures their minds and their spirits. In the tradition of Solomon Schechter schools, we ground a rigorous academic curriculum in the culture and tenets of Conservative Judaism, while welcoming students and families from a range of synagogue affiliations and Jewish expression.
Golda Och Academy is a vibrant learning community that focuses on the individual intellectual, social and spiritual needs of each child. We cultivate in students a lifelong love of learning within the context of Jewish knowledge and heritage.
The school is located on two campuses — one for the Lower School and one for the Upper School — located about two miles apart in West Orange, serving approximately 550 students from more than 70 communities across New Jersey.
