Breakthrough provides a path to college, starting in middle school, for low-income students who will be first-generation college graduates. The program admits students as 6th graders and makes a six-year commitment to helping them graduate from high school and enter college. Breakthrough admitted its first class in 2002, and currently serves more than 240 students in grades seven through twelve. Our goal is for at least 90% of our students to graduate from high school and for at least 85% of them to go straight to college.
