About Breakthrough New York

Breakthrough New York prepares motivated students from low-income communities to achieve a college degree and reach their fullest potential. Our tuition-free program currently supports over 500 talented students and their families from 7th grade through college. We accept middle school students who are furthest from high-quality educational opportunities, yet show promise and potential: 99% of students identify as persons of color; 76% qualify for free-or-reduced lunch; and 66% will be the first in their families to graduate college.
