Hillel Academy was founded in 1962 by a group of Dayton parents seeking to provide their children with a strong Jewish identity and an excellent education. Today, Hillel Academy remains true to that vision by being the only school within six counties to offer Judaic and Secular Studies instruction to children in Kindergarten - 6th Grade.
