Program Description

Breakthrough Houston is an educational program that puts motivated students from underserved areas on the path to college. Why? Because at Breakthrough, we envision a day when all children have equitable access to quality education and teachers committed to their success. Check out our website with sections about Summer, School Year, and College Bound programs to learn more. Breakthrough's mission is to prepare students who possess high academic potential, but limited educational resources, for competitive high school programs and college admission.
