Because the entire school experience is much more than the academic component, Hillel Academy is committed to providing students and parents with a full and enjoyable on-campus experience. We offer a wide variety of services and activities so you can view the campus as your home away from home. We also understand that our students’ families and parents have busy lives away from Hillel, so we make every effort to make our school services as convenient as possible.
Hillel Academy offers morning transportation services from Pinellas County, Westchase and South Tampa. We also have a convenient drop-off and pick-up process in mornings and afternoons if you find that it is more convenient to bring your students yourself. For more information on transportation schedules, please call the office at 813-963-2422.
In addition to allowing students to bring their own lunch, Hillel contracts with a local kosher caterer to provide a nutritious, hot lunch four days each week. Lunches can be conveniently ordered at orderlunches.com. The process is fully handled online, including payment, so you don’t have to worry about your child bringing lunch money to school. Each month a new menu is posted, so you can order as many or as few lunches as you’d like. All orders for the month are placed at one time.
We also allow any vegetarian, parve, or dairy foods to meet special dietary preferences. On Tuesdays, our eighth grade students offer a pizza and smoothie lunch to support their class trip to Israel. If your child brings his or her lunch, we do not allow carbonated beverages for grades K - 5. Middle school students are permitted to use a microwave in the cafeteria. Contact the school office if you've any questions about our lunch program.
Before- and After-School Care
We understand that the school day doesn’t always fit neatly into working hours. To help accommodate your busy schedule, we offer optional before and after school care for all ages. Students can play with friends, finish homework, or participate in lightly instructed activities. For more information on before- and after-school care schedules and tuition, please contact our admissions office.
At Hillel Academy, we believe a strong academic foundation is built in the classroom and outside of it. That’s why we offer a number of extracurricular activities and clubs, ranging from the athletic to the cultural to the academic. A sampling of our clubs include:
- Chess club
- Lego club
- Co-ed soccer
- Boys basketball
- Girls basketball
- Girls volleyball
- Co-ed track
- Co-ed flag football
