The Arrowsmith Program is based on the science of Neuroplasticity, or the brains ability to rewire itself. Think of our Cognitive Enhancement Program like exercise for the brain – getting into shape so it has a greater capacity to learn and process information. Research indicates that by building cognitive strength in these key networks, the brain doesn’t have to work as hard; it takes in, learns, understands, remembers and applies information more efficiently.

Arrowsmith is for everyone! Every brain has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses – regardless of age, education or learning profile. That means everyone can benefit from BrainAcademi’s Arrowsmith Program.

Our goal is to enhance the strengths and build up the weaker brain areas with targeted cognitive exercise. We’re about making our students the best versions of themselves at every age and stage of life.
