What We Do

Breakthrough Miami is an eight-year, tuition-free academic enrichment program that provides motivated middle-school students from underserved communities with the tools they need to achieve their most ambitious goals in life. Our students-teaching-students internship engages outstanding older students as teachers, mentors and role models, so that our scholars enter and thrive in college-prep high schools and enroll in college. This award-winning program serves 1,200 talented students. More than 95 percent of our students attend public middle- and high-schools in Miami-Dade County, while participating in our enrichment activities on six independent school sites -- Ransom Everglades, Miami Country Day School, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Palmer Trinity School, Gulliver Schools and University of Miami. 

  • Our rigorous six-week Summer Institute and Breakthrough Saturday school-year program encourages middle-school students to enter, thrive in and graduate from top college-prep high schools and four-year colleges and universities.
     
  • Our College Bound program prepares high school students for the challenges of college and beyond, with advanced academic support, guidance on college selection and experiential learning that develops life skills.
     
  • Our student-to-student model engages outstanding older students in teaching, tutoring and mentoring, and encourages them to pursue careers in the field of education.
     
  • Together, our eight-year, tuition-free program creates and sustains a nurturing environment that inspires love of learning, strong supportive relationships and high aspirations.

 

 

100% of Breakthrough Miami's 2012 high school seniors graduated on-time, and 98% enrolled in college.
