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 be sharing our unique learning environment with children and families of Summit and surrounding counties. Last school year we offered classes for students in grades Kindergarten through second grade and have added grades 3-5 for this 2018-2019 academic year. Our final expansion plans will include all grades through 8th.
Our curriculum, teaching philosophy, and nurturing atmosphere replicate the highly successful program offered to children with learning differences at our Lyndhurst campus for the past 65 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
As a ministry of St. Sebastian Parish, Julie Billiart Schools Akron operates independent of the parish and their day school but has received much-appreciated guidance and direction from the church and its parishioners. St. Sebastian Parish provides support for monthly Mass and the sacraments while the schools often share resources and have organized group learning activities together. We are most grateful for this partnership and continously look for new ways to collaborate with the parish and day school.
We welcome you to call or stop in anytime for a closer look at what makes us different from other schools.
