The Merit of Scholarship

On June 2, we proudly awarded our first merit scholarships to incoming ninth-grader Yael C. and current students Noa S. and Jacob C.

Our Scholars: Noa, Yael (center), and Jacob
Yael, a Golda Och Academy Scholar will receive annual awards equivalent to full tuition, and Schechter Scholars Jacob and Noa will receive annual stipends. The scholarships will be awarded annually to highly motivated students who embody the values and the ideals of the Golda Och Academy mission. Current eighth-grade students and new students were eligible for the scholarships.

“Today is a wonderful first for our school – we are truly blessed to be recognizing our first Golda Och and Schechter Scholars,” said Upper School Principal Nancy Leaderman. She added, “In creating these scholarships, our Board and administration have taken the core values of our school – academic excellence, commitment to Jewish study and tradition and the nurturance of the next generation of leaders in our Jewish community and world – and sought to embody those values in students who show remarkable promise and achievement.”
