Our son has been at Julie Billiart for a year and a half. Anytime we're asked where he goes to school, we talk about what an amazing place it is. We've seen so much growth in such a short time. In academics, he's advancing and doing things we only dreamed about a few years ago. Socially, we continue to see him grow and mature. We never worry about him when we drop him off... great educators. So many smiles... you can feel the love there.

JB Akron has welcomed our daughter with open arms. She used to strongly dislike school, now she loves it and even looks forward to going every day! The school staff has the patience required for children that have learning disabilities. They don't pressure her and they let her work at her own pace and are readily available to help. I prayed and fasted for 3 years for God to get us in here and it was worth it!

I've never worked with another organization that so completely lives out its mission. Julie Billiart Schools is a safe landing place for families who want the best for their kids. I love how JB celebrates success for EVERY students and how the organization supports not only children but their families.

Julie Billiart is an amazing school. The moment you walk in you are greeted by smiling faces and a sense of comfort. We knew once we walked in the doors that our son was going to do great here. He could work through his anxieties and get his speech and occupational needs met while getting a great education with a small classroom size which helps to individualize attention and learning. His education is tailored to his needs and on the level that is needed. He`s a great reader and academically needs challenged because he`s quite the smarty pants. He`s thriving and has so many wonderful friends to see each day. The faculty genuinely cares for each child and they are very considerate of each child`s individualized learning plan. There are scholarships and financial assistance available, a good education with additional services is not out of reach! Our story is just beginning, but I cannot wait to see what is next! The JB way is magical and I would love to see more kiddos benefit from a school like this! Ours sure has!

I can`t say enough about this school. Our son has been diagnosed with high functioning autism, Tourette`s syndrome, significant phonological speech disorder and mixed receptive and expressive language disorder. He was failing in our public school setting. As I mom I constantly fought for services and was told they were doing all they could. At the end of third quarter he knew 17 letters of the alphabet and a handful of numbers. Since he is on an IEP they were going to push him through to first grade and did not see it as an issue. We made the decision then to pull him from the public school with 6 weeks left to go in the year. His report cards speak for itself. He went from limited progress with intervention to mastering all subjects. If you have a child who has an learning difficulties please look into this school. The teachers and staff are beyond amazing. They are trained and have the tools for kids with learning disabilities to succeed. We are blessed to have found Julie Billiart Schools for our son.

My son was hesitant to go to JB at first but his attitude quickly changed. He made lots of friends and still even after going on to high school visits JB regularly. We are not Catholic so I too was a bit reluctant but everyone was so welcoming. We felt right at home.

RE: Great School/Great Cause The cost is higher than many other Private Schools in the area, but they truly focus on each child's individual needs. My son (now a senior) still speaks fondly of JB (Julie Billiart). He loved to go to school and his grades reflected his enthusiasm. They may be a Catholic School, but being non-Catholic, I can tell you that the child doesn't feel like an outcast.
