Welcome to Hillel Academy


Celebrating 52 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.
