Julie Billiart School of St. Sebastian Parish

Julie Billiart School has been offering alternative education opportunities to children with special learning needs in the Cleveland area for over 60 years. Staying true to this tradition, JB is excited to announce their expansion into Summit County.
 
Our Strategic Growth Committee identified the Akron area as having a large need for quality special education opportunities. Many families have not be able to access the resources at our Lyndhurst campus because the commute is too far. The timing was just right when Pastor, Fr. Valencheck from St. Sebastian Parish approached us about bringing our program to Akron.
 
We plan to open the doors of our 380 Mineola Avenue facility in August of 2017 to Kindergarten, first, and second grade students. Each year, grades will be added until 2020, when all grades, Kindergarten through 8th, will be available.
 
Rooted in the beliefs of the Sisters of Notre Dame, Julie Billiart School of St. Sebastian Parish is committed to providing the highest level of education for children of all faiths who have special learning needs including autism, ADHD/ADD, specific learning challenges, dyslexia, and social delays.
 
We provide a whole-child approach to learning and maintain a low student-teacher ratio, 6:1, that allows for individualized attention and nurturing. By incorporating speech, occupational, and behavior therapies with a curriculum that meets common core state standards, we help students succeed beyond their Individual Education Plans.
