At Hillel Academy in Fairfield CT., we integrate the best of academic, extra-curricular, and Jewish learning for children from Nursery through 8th grade.
Families are sending their children to a unique Jewish Day School in Fairfield, CT from as far away as New Haven in the north to Yonkers, NY in the south.
Other schools might be bigger, several have more lavish facilities, but no other school offers your children such an opportunity to sharpen their minds and shape their spirit.
"Judaism should be as sweet as honey," says our principal, Rabbi Zvi Engle.
It is that philosophy to learning in both religious and secular studies, which has guided his predecessors for the last 45 years and has earned Hillel Academy distinctions unmatched by almost any school irrespective of size.

School Notes:

  • A Rich Diversity - The one common denominator at Hillel Academy is that our parents have chosen an extraordinary education for their children. We are a Modern Orthodox school open to all streams of Judaism, with a large percentage of the students from homes that are Conservative, Reform or unaffiliated. The school experience is one of family learning, with parents discovering that their children have a lot to teach them and siblings enthusiastically teaching each other.
