Breakthrough launches low-income students on the road to college.


Breakthrough students work hard, take risks and have fun.  They are promising 5th-9th graders who have the potential  to be first-generation college graduates. However, the challenges of race, poverty, language, and low-performing urban school threaten their dreams.  Through intensive sumer sessions, Breakthrough ensures high-potential students begin the road to college successfully in middle school.  The results are immediate.  By ninth grade, more that 90% of Breakthrough students are enrolled in rigorous, college-preparatory mathematics courses, and in tenth grade, over 90% of Breakthrough students are enrolled in college-preparatory science courses.
