Breakthrough students build confidence and find a strong, personal voice that guides them through middle school, high school, college, and beyond.

Each year Breakthrough Austin admits a new class of students. We currently serve more than 1,090 students in grades 6 through college.

Through our rigorous summer programs, year-round mentoring, academic guidance, and informative family workshops, Breakthrough helps bridge the gap in educational achievement between low-income and more affluent students.

We also invite you to visit the Meet Our Students section to learn more about our students and their goals.
