We are Breakthrough Atlanta

Part of the Breakthrough Collaborative National Program

We are the young people who make a difference,
striving toward academic success and personal mastery.
We participate fully in a six-year, year-round,
academically intense, study-skills based enrichment program.
We come with open minds, willing hearts, caring souls, and high expectations.
We are people of humility, wisdom, nurturing, and forgiveness.

Breakthrough Atlanta students and their families make a commitment to participate in the Breakthrough program for six years, from 6th grade through 12th grade. In the end, their dedication pays off:

100%

of BTA students graduate from high school, and

95%

go on to attend a college or university.

Breakthrough Atlanta Teacher

“Being one of the first in my family to have the opportunity to go to college seemed like a dream, but my teaching fellows at Breakthrough taught me that it could be a reality. I’ve obtained scholarships, honors, and was even the Valedictorian of my high school and that was largely due to my Breakthrough experience.”
