Get in touch for a FREE Assessment to LEARN MORE!

Learn about your child’s Language Arts skill-set from one of our certified Assessment Ambassadors. We invite parents to participate in the (FREE!) assessment. The assessment is both conversation-style and includes diagnostics that reveal your child’s areas of strength and weakness in grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing persuasive arguments and opinions (typical length is 45min – 1 hour).

If we find that your child would benefit from Brain Power’s programs, our Assessment Ambassador will recommend a level for them so that they are placed in a class that will both nourish and challenge them.
