The Admission Process

The first step to a new world is to enroll.

Our Admissions Process

Julie Billiart School admits students selectively (based on the services available at the school and in the classroom) after completion of the following application process:

1.  Parents attend an open house to tour the school and observe classes in session.

2.  Applications are available at open houses, by calling (216) 381-1191, or can be downloaded at

3.  Completely and as accurately as possible, fill out all of the forms and return them to the school office with a nonrefundable check of $50 (application fee). Julie Billiart's admissions committee will review the application. The application package must include:
    • Application form
    • Nonrefundable $50 application fee
    • Child's birth certificate
    • Child's baptismal certificate, where applicable
    • Child's most recent academic records
    • Evaluation Team Report (ETR)
    • Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
    • Psychological evaluation - prepared within the past year (if applicable)
    • Recent photo of child
    • Custody papers, where applicable

4.  If, after a review of the records, it seems that Julie Billiart School may be an appropriate placement for a child, the school will schedule an informal assessment of the child along with an interview with the parents/guardians.

5.  Before a final admission determination is made, the child will spend time at the school and with a classroom teacher.
