Welcome from the Director of Enrollment Management

Thank you for your interest in Hillel Day School! We are thrilled that you have taken the time to learn about our school, what makes Hillel so unique, and the many benefits your children will receive by attending Hillel. Our innovative Jewish day school is dedicated to providing a modern education in a cutting-edge facility designed to give our students every advantage for future success.

With a student population of around 580, Hillel offers children a safe, nurturing atmosphere during their most formative years, all while providing an academic, spiritual, and moral foundation. Hillel’s ECC-8 model provides crucial stability with a focus on the social-emotional and developmental needs of students ages 18 months to fourteen.

Hillel students acquire essential skills to succeed in the world they will inherit. Skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and character will enable our graduates to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. Students pursue their passions, unlock their creativity, and engage in authentic learning experiences in small classes with two teachers and specialists who facilitate and enrich their learning. Along the way, students problem-solve and analyze in two languages, utilize the latest technology to support their learning, and receive guidance from teachers who both nurture and challenge them as they lay an exceptional academic foundation for all students.
As a community day school, Hillel families are diverse in Jewish affiliation and observance. Your child will develop a deep personal connection to Judaism, rooted in genuine respect for the wide range of practice and belief that exist in the Jewish community.

We pride ourselves on being a community for your entire family. When the school day ends, we offer a robust menu of after-school activities, including a wide variety of athletics. We encourage and welcome parental involvement, and enjoy sharing school gatherings, performances and life-cycle events with our students and their families.

It is very important that families understand that tuition should not be a deterrent to enrolling your child at Hillel. We are committed to making school affordable. In fact, more than 60% of our students receive some form of tuition assistance. For more information about affordability, please click on the Affording Hillel link.

We invite you to come visit during the school day to meet our exemplary faculty, staff, and students, and observe our innovative and exciting educational philosophy in action! You will witness first-hand how Hillel seamlessly incorporates ethics and values into the lives of our students.

We are here to help you familiarize yourself with every aspect of Hillel so you can determine the best educational setting for your child and family. Our goal is to make the admission process as smooth and as friendly as possible. We look forward to sharing our special school with you!

“We love Hillel Day School! It’s hard to capture in words how impactful the Hillel experience has been for our family. It starts with warm, caring, and attentive teachers who treat our children like their own. These amazing teachers also provide a world-class, values-based education where mind, body, and soul all receive the attention they deserve. The end result are children who develop a love for learning and who become respectful, responsible, and kind members of our community. We’ve seen this first-hand with our children and are forever grateful to be part of this amazing school.”
