Breakthrough San Francisco – Looking for 4th Graders

 

 

Dear Breakthrough San Francisco Supporters,

 

We hope this message finds you well! Breakthrough San Francisco is pleased to announce that we have opened the application process for motivated fourth graders in San Francisco!

 

 

What is Breakthrough?

 

Breakthrough SF is an amazing opportunity for students and families. Accepted students participate in our year-round, tuition-free, out of school-time programming until the end of middle school with additional low-touch programming throughout high school. Our goal is to support motivated students on the path to college by helping them develop the skills they need to be successful in an academically rigorous setting. We offer year-round enrichment and support, and we provide middle school, high school and college admissions support.
