Celebrating 51 Years of Excellence
The value of a day school education extends far beyond learning history, customs and ceremonies, and prayers. Hillel Academy helps young students form strong Jewish identities.
As a true community school Hillel Academy brings together children from all corners of Binghamton's Jewish community—Conservative, Orthodox, Reform, and unaffiliated—in a warm, nurturing environment. Hillel Academy fosters a community spirit based on mutual acceptance, and recognizes, respects and values diversity.

We are proud to offer our pre-K program (“Ganeinu”) free of charge!
Ganeinu, the Hebrew term for “our garden” is our pre-kindergarten classroom. This year, we are expanding Ganeinu by opening it free of charge to 4 years old (by 1 December) children in the Binghamton Jewish community. This half-day program runs Monday through Friday, from 8:40 am – 12:30 pm.
Class size is capped at 8 students. Please register now!
Kindergarten – Fifth Grade Registration
We offer language instruction in both Spanish and Hebrew, music, art, Jewish customs and ceremonies, and the best in math, science, and humanities education. The students of Hillel Academy have the advantage of small class sizes, enabling staff to individualize instruction, focus on each child’s needs and strengths, and provide a stimulating enriched environment in which to learn and grow. We teach to students, not to exams.
Class size is capped at 10 students. Please register now!
For more information, please call School Administrator Julie Piaker (607) 722 – 9274, or click here for forms and information on registration.
