Breakthrough Pittsburgh is a tuition-free, six-year academic enrichment program committed to supporting academically motivated, but under-resourced middle and high school students to enter and succeed in college-preparatory high school programs and attend a four-year college. Operating under a six-year model, programming for students and families begins the summer before 7th or 8th grade and continues during the school year and throughout high school.
Breakthrough is committed to selecting a class of students who approximate the ethnic, racial, religious and cultural diversity of our city. Breakthrough accepts students regardless of race, creed or color; we are committed to selecting a diverse group of students who benefit from the program.
