School Age (7-18)

Our goal at BrainAcademi is to help students become effective, confident and self-directed learners. The Arrowsmith program is designed to strengthen learning capacities rather than teach ways to compensate for specific learning weaknesses.

Research indicates that with stronger cognitive capacities in these key networks, the brain doesn’t have to work as hard; it takes in, learns, understands, remembers and applies information more efficiently.

I wanted to take a moment to thank Brain Academi for the Arrowsmith Program. I am the parent of a late-diagnosed ADD child, who in Grade 12 began the Arrowsmith Program. You might only imagine the resistance we experienced. I cannot say enough about Luciana as the facilitator. Nothing gets in the way of her being a steadfast cheerleader of these kids. The worst day they can be having is not an issue; she simply has their back, encouraging them through their frustration and championing their victories.

Before enrolling our son, we sat down to have a very transparent conversation of where we were at. Our concerns were met with confidence, which proved out over the course of the program. The changes that Luciana predicted did indeed happen. It was remarkable. I am so grateful that this program exists and that it is in our own backyard. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
