our success

At the start of every summer session, our Breakthrough students are given Woodcock-Johnsonevaluations to test their academic skill level. Six weeks later, they are again evaluated in math, writing and reading fluency, and calculations. Every year, at the end of the summer institute, our students show marked improvement – a testament to the success of our programming.  Below are the results of our summer 2012 evaluation.

Since the inception of our six-year model, 100% of our students have matriculated to four-year colleges upon graduation.
