About us

Breakthrough Philadelphia launches talented students, beginning in middle school, on a path to college success and inspires outstanding college students to pursue careers in education.  

Breakthrough increases educational opportunity by focusing on the development of both students and teachers.  Through academic enrichment and college preparation, Breakthrough prepares students who have limited educational opportunities to attend and succeed at competitive high schools and four-year colleges.  Simultaneously, Breakthrough develops future educators by providing professional teaching experiences to college students through its selective residency programs.  Breakthrough Philadelphia is part of a national educational movement called The Breakthrough Collaborative, which operates in 26 cities across the country.
