Entrance Exam Preparation
Many of our Brain Power students opt to try out for gifted or high-level academic day-school programs and find the guidance and support necessary for acceptance at Brain Power. While our Problem Solving and Language Arts programs provide excellent enrichment opportunities and often provide the “boost” necessary for students to be admitted to prestigious gifted programs, we also offer additional training for specific tests, portfolio preparation, and interviews. Each year we are proud of the many Brain Power students accepted to UTS, IB, TOPS, MaCS, UCC, and other gifted programs (entrance from Grade 7 through high school).
The upcoming year’s additional training for the SSAT test and UTS interview will begin in summer (see “Summer” offerings at Brain Power) and continue in late September, running through to January/February for some program preparation. There are various options for training and preparation–students have the option to register for various preparation length courses and for English and/or Mathematics. In the summer, we meet twice a week; in the fall, we meet once a week, in addition to Brain Power classes (for those students who are also enrolled in our year-long courses), to cover various areas pertinent to this test (how to master this type of test, mathematics training, language arts training, stress management, timing, etc.). We typically meet on Sundays in the late afternoons. Registration is required.
2017-18 Registration Has Begun!

Got in? What next? More Brain Power!
Most of our Entrance Exam Prep students continue to study at Brain Power after being accepted to the gifted/specialty program of their choice. In fact, many Brain Power students attend gifted day-school programs, both private and public; why? because the Brain Power experience offers something not available at any other elementary or secondary learning institution in the GTA (and beyond). Here is one of our students giving his reasons for staying at Brain Power after being accepted into UCC:
“I still come to Brain Power after being accepted to Upper Canada College because Brain Power educates in a way no other institution can. It provides me with some of the most useful writing and oral skills I can possibly ever need. Most of all, I love going and spending time with others who want to enrich themselves, and enjoy great teachers who are also great friends.” Ernst Ma – UCC and Brain Power student
