Ways To Give

Donate to a Good Cause

Julie Billiart Schools offer an individualized whole-child approach to education. But to our students, it’s simply school.
 
A donation to Julie Billiart Schools means more students with special learning needs can receive the programs, therapies, and support they need to be academically and socially successful. We believe every child deserves love, acceptance, and belonging. Your donation makes that possible. The generosity of our donors helps us ensure that no child is denied the education they deserve because of their family's ability to afford tuition.
 
Nearly 100% of our students receive some form of financial aid through state-funded scholarships, however, for those that don’t receive full funding, Julie Billiart Schools also offer a tuition forgiveness program (to qualifying families) for uncovered costs. Much appreciated, personal, corporate and honorary/memorial contributions make this possible.
