Our culture, what we often call “the JB Way” is who we are. It's what we do. It's how we do it. It's the combined qualities, characteristics, and attributes demonstrated by the Notre Dame educators and the charism of St. Julie Billiart that set us apart from other learning environments. The JB Way is our core, our strength, and our reminder of how ALL children have the potential to be happy, successful students.

"Julie Billiart Schools has helped my child become a better version of himself. He no longer feels different when he's having a bad day and is now learning how to work through his frustrations. They have also helped him see that he's not the only one that has challenges. The teachers and therapists at JB really know and understand how to reach children that learn differently. Not only has the school embraced my child, but they have embraced our whole family."
