School Visit

Upon receipt of your application, we will schedule a tour of the school with you and your child. This is an opportunity for us to get to know you, and for you to ask questions and learn about our program. Tours begin in January for fall enrollment.


Financial Aid

If possible, please bring proof of income to your school tour. In order for us to provide financial assistance for your child, you must supply a copy of your most recent 1040 Income Tax Return, W-2s, or a month of pay stubs. Financial aid is granted based on need and is completely confidential. No family will be denied admission due to an inability to pay.


Parent Contract

Once financial aid has been finalized, you will receive a Parent Contract, which must be completed and returned with a deposit as soon as possible. Your child cannot enroll if these are not received before the start of school.

**Please note that as part of this contract, parents must commit to attending monthly workshops.



Adam J. Lewis Academy welcomes all children, regardless of race, color, nationality, or religious background. By enrolling your child, you agree to the policies and practices that have been established in accordance with the Connecticut Department of Health Child Day Care Licensing and those that AJLA has found appropriate. It is the parents’ responsibility to read the Parent Handbook, and to stay informed of school policies throughout the year. Once enrolled, a child is expected to attend full time unless he or she is sick.

Adam J. Lewis Academy does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, age, ancestry, national origin, or sexual orientation in the administration of its educational programs, admission policies, financial aid policies, or any other school-administered programs.
