Experiential Learning

Field Trips

It is our philosophy that out-of-school and in-school field trips enrich the learning experience and they should complement student learning. Field trips have included excursions to:

  • Lowry Park Zoo
  • Florida Aquarium
  • Tampa Museum of History
  • Booker Creek Nature Preserve
  • James Western Art Museum
  • Mahaffey Theater
  • Old McMickey’s Farm

Extraordinary Experiential Learning

Middle School students travel into the world about which they learn. These extraordinary field trips not only build knowledge and skills, but they provide opportunities for Hillel Academy students to deepen their social relationships and enrich their emotional health by exercising empathy, responsibility, and self-reliability.

  • Sixth grade students study Marine Biology in the Florida Keys at Marine Lab.
  • Seventh grade students travel to Washington D.C., complementing their studies in American History and the History of The Holocaust.
  • In collaboration with other small Jewish day schools from around the country, eighth grade students travel to Israel as a capstone to their Jewish, Hebrew, and Israel learning throughout their Hillel Academy journey.
