At Brainy Academy, children have the opportunity to explore a creative path of learning using their own talents rather than a textbook. Brainy Academy, which has recently opened a second location in Park Slope, offers various programs for ages 2-12 to prepare children for the Gifted & Talented exam. 

In Brainy Montessori, children ages 3-12 learn and develop early mathematic and reading skills. The Pre-K Alternative Program, which can be combined with public school pre-K, teaches children math, reading, writing, science, and Russian language skills. The Summer Enrichment Program is offered for three age groups. For ages 2 through first grade, it is a Montessori Enrichment program. For second through fourth grades, the summer program includes math and English lessons, with art, science, and Lego enrichment.

Brainy Academy offers a Lego enrichment program, Brainy Builders with Lego Education, once a week. Children learn logic skills by using Lego materials, such as building toys or robots, and will obtain early physics and engineering abilities. Brainy Academy also provides tutoring for pre-K through sixth grade for children seeking one-on-one learning and Brainy Workshops, including cooking and sewing classes.

The Park Slope center held its grand opening June 15 and 16—classes started June 17.
