Hillel Academy Pittsburgh says

Hillel Academy is an orthodox community day school committed to the State of Israel and devoted to producing mitzvah-observant graduates who are prepared for the finest universities and post-high school Torah institutions. Academic excellence is the goal of Hillel Academy. Both General and Judaic studies programs should be rigorous and yet attentive to the needs of children with different learning styles, motivations and abilities. Boys and girls should be taught with the same intensity, breadth and depth of study. Hillel Academy is unequivocally committed to derech eretz and the development of proper midot (character traits) in its students. Our graduates should be models of integrity, decency, kindness and responsibility for self and others. Hillel Academy should develop in its students a love for all Jews and a respect for the authenticity of different Torah paths. Hillel is dedicated to providing an education to any Jewish child, regardless of ability to pay. Nevertheless, Hillel expects its families to contribute to the well-being of the school through tuition and/or fundraising and/or volunteering, to the best of their ability.
