We’re on a mission

In our city, a lot of kids don’t have access to a great, free school. Since 2009, our small and growing group of dedicated educators and business leaders, with a tremendous amount of community support, has been working day in and day out to change that. A lot has happened since then. We have partnered up with our local city school district, gained some major national support, and most importantly have grown into a thriving network of 10 schools serving nearly 3,000 students.

Where Will You Thrive?

When we started our network of schools, we knew our diversity was our foundation. We promised ourselves that we would maintain the distinctiveness of our founding schools as we grew. Built on that promise, we offer four innovative educational approaches to our students and teachers. Meet a few of our teachers and students thriving network-wide:

Meet Our Intergenerational Schools | Breakthrough Schools
Meet Our Preparatory Schools | Breakthrough Schools
Meet our Expeditionary Schools | Breakthrough Schools
Meet Our Citizens Schools | Breakthrough Schools

Are You Ready For This?

We’re growing, we’re hiring, and we need the best talent for our students. Is that you? If so, let’s get started. We have a quote hanging on our wall, and we believe it: “This is your world. Shape it or someone else will.” Let’s do this, together.
