Julie Billiart Funds & Initiatives

The Julie Fund

The cornerstone of Julie Billiart Schools has always been a commitment to the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and social development of children with learning differences. Our "whole-child" approach to teaching is only possible by growing and adapting to the ever-changing needs of our students. By helping to provide tuition assistance to nearly 30% of the student body, the Julie Fund plays a critical role in our ability to offer the “whole-child approach” to educating children with special learning needs. All members of the Julie Billiart Schools community are encouraged to participate in the Julie Fund at any level. Your gift truly impacts the students of Julie Billiart Schools. Your continued support will ensure that our students receive an inclusive education in the loving environment they deserve.

Tuition Assistance Fund

Each year Julie Billiart Schools financially assists several families whose children attend our school. The Tuition Assistance Program allows businesses and individuals to contribute to a fund that goes solely towards providing financial assistance to those families. Because of the generosity of many businesses and families in our community, we have been able to sustain this program year after year.
 
With your support, deserving students, who may not otherwise be able to attend our school because of financial hardship, will have a solid education. One hundred percent of the money raised through our Tuition Assistance Fund goes directly toward their tuition.

Network Growth

In our 63+ years since the school's founding, Julie Billiart Schools is moving forward with unprecedented energy and purpose. A forward-thinking strategic plan and recent fundraising successes have created momentum that continues to build. 
 
School year 2017-2018 will kick off a new chapter for Julie Billiart Schools as we expand into Akron.  Our strategic plan calls for additional Julie Billiart Schools across NE Ohio.  Your gift will help us achieve that goal and potentially serve more 700+ children with special learning and social needs.
