I CAN be a part of the class. "When I get frustrated I don't get sent to the principal's office. My teacher helps me in the classroom with everyone else. I don't feel different than the other kids. I feel like I belong."Read More ▸

Private Special Needs School In Akron 

Welcome To Julie Billiart School, Akron

Let me start by saying we are so excited to be the first expansion school in the Julie Billiart Network. The Akron community has been overwhelmingly supportive and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our unique learning environment with children and families of Summit and surrounding counties. This past school year we offered classes for students in grades Kindergarten through second grade and will be adding grades 3-5 for the 2018-2019 academic year. Our final expansion plans will include all grades through 8th. 
 
Our curriculum, teaching philosophy, and nurturing atmosphere replicates the highly successful program offered to children with learning differences at our Lyndhurst campus for the past 63 years. As the only private elementary school in the area totally dedicated to students with unique learning needs, our small class sizes, individualized curriculum, social learning programs, and onsite therapies are core to "The JB Way".
 
We welcome you to call or stop in anytime for a closer look at what makes us different from the rest.
 
Warm regards,
Jason Wojnicz
Principal, Julie Billiart School - Akron
