Julie Billiart School Lyndhurst, located on a quiet, tree-lined street in Lyndhurst, Ohio, was the first JB campus and one of the first in Ohio to educate children with learning differences. JB Lyndhurst’s 65+ year history is seen and felt throughout the Arter Mansion, which was gifted to Julie Billiart Schools by the Arters in 1957. Today, JB Lyndhurst serves as a beautiful reminder of our history and a reflection of our growth and innovation.

Students and faculty enjoy the charm and prestige of a school within a mansion. The school includes a peaceful chapel, a spacious gym, sensory-friendly classrooms and quiet spaces, a show-stopping library, a makerspace, an occupational therapy gym, and speech, art, and music therapy rooms.

History of JB Lyndhurst

In 1954, the Sisters of Notre Dame founded Julie Billiart School on the Notre Dame Academy campus at Ansel Road. They welcomed 15 children into the school in JB’s first year. Three years later, enrollment and interest had grown so much that JB needed a new home. In 1957, Calvin and Charles Arter generously donated their late parents' 6-acre estate at 4982 Clubside Drive in Lyndhurst to the Sisters of Notre Dame.

The 22-room mansion on the estate, built in 1927, allowed enrollment to increase. As enrollment continued to grow, JB Lyndhurst added a new gymnasium and classrooms in 1971 and 1974, respectively. In 2006, the mansion underwent a 16,000 square foot addition (5 classrooms/resource rooms and an art room).
