Brain Power: Think broadly and start early
Brain Power Unlocks Students’ Potential for University Applications Through Innovative 1:1 and Group Sessions
High school is a time for exploration, growth, and preparation for the future. For many students, the ultimate goal is to attend a university and pursue their passions. However, the university application process can be daunting, and students may not know where to start. Brain Power, a 30- year international leader in enrichment programs for high-potential kids from Grade 1 through Grade 12 is here to help. With campuses in Vaughan, Hamilton, North Toronto, and Oakville, Brain Power offers a range of innovative programs that help students develop the creativity, problem-solving, and critical-thinking skills needed to succeed in a changing and globally-minded world.
Now, Brain Power also offers a new series of 1:1 and group sessions for university-bound students. Led by PhDs and other experts, these sessions help students explore their interests, connect with like-minded peers, and develop the skills and experiences that make them stand out in the post-secondary application process. In addition to the core curriculum of math, language arts, and public speaking programs, these pre-university and university preparation services help students identify their strengths, interests, and goals, and develop a strategic plan for success in university applications and beyond.

“Preparing for university applications is not just about checking boxes, or memorizing facts,” says Vanessa Serra Larocci, Brain Power’s CEO. “Its about unlocking each student’s potential and helping them discover their unique talents and passions. Universities are looking for well-rounded students who can contribute to their communities and make a difference in the world. We help students explore their interests, connect with like-minded peers, and develop the skills and experiences that make them stand out in the application process.”
Brain Power students are exposed to a network of academic and extracurricular contests and pursuits, are mentored to pursue these opportunities and are encouraged to think early and often about global issues. According to Sam Gorman, Brain Power alumnus: “My experiences in Brain Power’s public-speaking program, including competing at Speakers Idol, was key to my successful admission to business school.” Another recent alumna and winner of the prestigious $20,000 René Descartes Scholarship, Jessica Peter, noted: “I am so thankful to all the amazing instructors at Brain Power who helped me discover my passion for mathematics and computer science. They taught me how to think outside the box and shaped me into the curious and critical thinker I am today.”
