Typical Steps to Enrolment
Arrowsmith, in addition to our in-person school in Toronto, now offers participants the opportunity to strengthen their brains at home, online at Arrowsmith School Online, while working with a trained facilitator. Our in-person programs have been adapted for an online delivery experience.

An Arrowsmith Assessment measures the functioning of the 19 different cognitive functions that the Arrowsmith Program can address. This Assessment will take about 1 to 1 ½ days to complete and results will be ready for the Assessment Briefing within 3-5 days.
At the Assessment Briefing, the School Principal will have an opportunity to meet the child or adult who has been assessed, and their families, to explain the results of the Arrowsmith Assessment, presented in the form of an Initial Learning Profile. This Learning Profile describes a student’s cognitive profile as a list of strengths and difficulties, and will highlight which Arrowsmith Program exercises would be best suited to fundamentally improve learning ability. Program options (Full Time, Part Time, Motor Symbol Sequencing Program, Cognitive Intensive Program, Cognitive Enhancement Program, Remote Program) will be discussed at this stage.
Arrowsmith School will consider any student for enrolment. Our Admissions team will speak with parents and will ask to see a wide variety of reports, assessments, and observations in order to round out the picture of who each student is as a learner and to determine that Arrowsmith School is the proper fit for that student.
Enrolment is offered when it has been determined that the Arrowsmith Program and Arrowsmith School would be a suitable fit for a prospective candidate. This often takes place as part of the Assessment Briefing. An Assessment is not always required in order to offer enrolment. Once families have had the different programming options explained an appropriate offer of enrolment is made.
How to enroll your child at Arrowsmith School
The decision as to whether a student who is experiencing difficulty at school may be suitable for Arrowsmith School can usually be made based on discussion by telephone with parents and often with the students themselves.
Where necessary, we can also review school report cards and results of academic and psychological testing. Our experience has shown that most parents can identify with great accuracy the problems that their child is having at school.
Each student enrolling at Arrowsmith is assessed to determine the student’s learning profile and to plan the student’s program. Information about the assessment procedure is in the Assessment section of our web site.
Tuition fees at private schools are not tax deductible in Canada
Parents of students enroled in the Arrowsmith Program in Canada (at Arrowsmith School and at other schools that offer this program) may claim the Medical Expense Tax Credit. In certain circumstances, transportation and additional living expenses may qualify for the Medical Expense Tax Credit. Determination of whether an individual qualifies for the Medical Expense Tax Credit is made by Revenue Canada. We recommend that families in all cases contact their own accountant or financial advisor. Links to information on this are located under Tax Credit (Canada).
