Welcome to The Burlington Academy of Learning . . . "Where Children and Families are Celebrated!"
The Burlington Academy of Learning is a school for young children, ages 6 weeks through 6th grade, offering a warm environment and unique experience where children and families are welcomed and supported. We strive to bring out the beauty and uniqueness in every child and support parents to be the best parents they can be.
The Academy offers exceptional programs including our Infant and Toddler Programs,
2 and 3 Year Old Nursery School, PreKindergarten, Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten. We also offer Summer Camp – Hot Stuff Summer Camp for preschool children and Adventure Camp with Jump Start Tutoring, for children entering Kindergarten through 6th grade! In keeping with our goal to support parents and "the family", we offer extended school day options such as our Before School Program, Lunch Bunch, and our After School Program and Homework Club for children through 6th grade. We also offer a Supplemental Care Program, which offers care for children during holidays and vacations.

Criteria (factors) for decisions regarding your child's class placement:
Parent opinions and preferences are always welcomed and considered, but cannot always be followed. The school must make all final decisions about student placement.
2018-2019 FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The 2018-2019 “Year Round” calendar dates are August 29, 2018 through August 23, 2019.
The Infant Program and Toddlers/Twos Program in our Jr. Academy, do not require a school year commitment. Parents are kindly asked to give as much notice as possible if leaving, (minimum of two weeks notice is preferred) so we may attempt to offer the space to another child which keeps enrollment steady. This prevents us from having to decrease staff hours, keeping our staffing more consistent, a very important factor for young children. 2 Year Old Nursery School - Kindergarten Programs do require a school year commitment (September -June). This policy is essential to insure the highest quality of programs and commitment to our teachers.
TUITION EXPRESS: For the convenience of parents and to keep administrative costs down, tuition is paid in equal monthly installments collected through Tuition Express. These tuition payments are automatically debited from a bank account (checking or savings) or, if necessary, charged to a debit or credit card on the last day of each month. Upon receipt of the completed program registration form with registration fee and deposit, parents receive a letter confirming their child’s registration in the program selected. Parents also receive information on how to authorize payments through Tuition Express. Once the registration with deposit and Tuition Express account setup is finalized, a child’s placement in their class is secured. If you wish to change your payment method at any point in the school year, new paperwork must be submitted by the 25th of the month.
SIBLING DISCOUNT: The Academy offers a 5% sibling discount for both siblings, for all Day Programs with a minimum of a 2 full days/week program per sibling. The sibling discount does not apply to single SCP days, Before/After School Programs, Homework Club, and Summer Camp (except when included in year round tuition).
BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS and HOMEWORK CLUB PROGRAM: Parents are required to register for each and every year since attendance details and information must be updated, and give a $100 deposit which comes off the September fees. Upon receipt of your completed registration form with registration fee (new students) and deposit, parents receive a letter confirming their child’s registration in our Before/After School Programs and/or Homework Club. Before and After School Program tuition is paid on a monthly basis through Tuition Express (see above). Total cost for programs attended are paid automatically through parents’ Tuition Express account on the last day of each month.
SUPPLEMENTAL CARE PROGRAM, SNOW DAY PROGRAM and/or EXTRA CLASSES: Payment for extra classes and our Snow Day Program are paid through Tuition Express. Payment for the Supplemental Care Program is due at the time of registration. Payments may be made by check placed in the locked boxes or you may swipe a credit card at the check-in station in the Junior Academy Office or Main Office.
SUMMER CAMP: Summer Camp registrations are needed by May 1st to secure excellent staff and adequately prepare for Summer Camp! Registrations received after May 1st must include a $50 late registration fee. Tuition options are to pay in full at the time of registration or to pay 50% at time of registration and pay balance on or before June 1st. All summer camp must be paid in full prior to start of camp.
CARE 4 KIDS PROGRAM - The Burlington Academy participates in the State of CT “Care 4 Kids Program”.
