BACKGROUND INFORMATION; TWO-FOLD MISSIONBreakthrough aims to prepare students who possess high academic potential, but limited educational resources, for competitive high-school programs and college admission. In addition, we train talented college and high-school students for careers in education.
OUR VISIONAt Breakthrough Houston, we envision a day when all children will have equal access to quality education and teachers committed to their academic success.
- BTH is a tuition-free, year-round academic program.- BTH focuses its attention on academically talented students with limited educational opportunities.- Our students primarily attend Houston public schools (HISD).- Our students make a six-year commitment to our program: two years in middle school; four in high school.- Students begin the program in their summer following 6th grade. The program consists of a three rigorous six-week summer session, a School Year Program, and a College Bound Program.
