MERIT / Arrowsmith
The Arrowsmith Program at ELCA is one of only three offered in the state. Georgia is one of only 15 states where it is hosted. This unique and sought-after program is overseen by Misty Weber, who underwent 3 months of in-depth training in Toronto on Arrowsmith techniques and applications.
The Arrowsmith Program is based on the philosophy that it is possible to address specific learning difficulties by identifying and strengthening cognitive capacities. Elementary or middle school students may begin this 3-year program and, after completion, are successful in re-entering the traditional classroom.
One parent describes this program as life-changing. “My son graduated from the Arrowsmith program two years ago. When he entered the program in the 6th grade, he had a lack of confidence and faced many academic challenges. Arrowsmith has been an answer to prayer for our son. He is now a very confident 11th grader and is maintaining an A average. The Arrowsmith Program has opened up doors of opportunity for our son and given him a beautiful gift...unlimited possibilities for his future. We will forever be grateful for the Arrowsmith Program.”
