Hillel Academy is committed to the development of each of its students from a holistic perspective. In order to provide as complete an education as possible, Hillel Academy has committed itself to the concept of service learning, in which students make connections with the wider community as part of their academic pursuits. Students construct and execute projects within the community that are of mutual benefit; projects are designed to enhance the students’ academic studies while at the same time providing valuable public services. Students use these projects to reflect on the value of public service and on their place in society. Service learning enables Hillel Academy students to grow as responsible and productive members of the community.
