BACKGROUND INFORMATION; TWO-FOLD MISSION
Breakthrough 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 VISION
At Breakthrough Houston, we envision a day when all children will have equal and equitable 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 attend Houston ISD schools.
- 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 sessions, a School Year Program, and a College Bound Program.

- Attend all scheduled School Year Program sessions (must have own transportation) unless there’s an emergency and/or you communicate potential conflicts ahead of time.

- Arrive and depart SYP sessions at the times designated (as listed on the School Year Teacher Application 2019-2020).
