Promoting Academic Excellence

Breakthrough Miami is an eight-year tuition-free academic enrichment program for under-resourced middle and high school students in Miami-Dade County. Breakthrough Miami uses a student-teaching-students model to provide middle and high school opportunities and support, as well as ensuring students graduate from high school on time and attend college.Students enter the Breakthrough Miami program during their 5th grade summer and can continue in the program up through high school graduation. Breakthrough Miami’s College Bound School Year 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. The program is held monthly on Saturdays at the University of Miami Coral Gables campus.
