Program Description

At Breakthrough, we believe all young people should have access to an excellent education, a clear pathway to college, and highly effective teachers committed to their success. In pursuit of this vision, we provide intensive, year-round academic enrichment and support to motivated 5-12th graders with limited educational opportunities, helping them attend college. In addition, we train outstanding college students from across the country for education careers: developing their instructional skills, building their knowledge of pathways to teaching, and inspiring them to work in the field.

We are an initiative of SF Day School, a K-8 independent school that values academic excellence for all students, whether in public or private schools. We are one of two dozen national affiliates of the Oakland-based organization Breakthrough Collaborative.
