Our Results

Since 1995, Breakthrough Houston has been a stepping stone to success for underserved students across Houston. Furthering our mission to prepare students for competitive high school programs and college admission, 99% of Breakthrough students have been accepted into at least one college or university – schools like Stanford, Princeton, Duke, Yale, Rice, Georgetown, Texas A&M, University of Texas, Baylor, and more. And 94% of current Breakthrough Houston high school students are enrolled in a college preparatory high school.

Our programs have received numerous accolades for educational reform, but our greatest achievement is watching our students excel in school and reach their college dreams.

“Without the College Bound program I don’t think I’d understand how important everything I do in school is to the rest of my future. Breakthrough has given me the mindset to plan early and always know what my next step is to achieving my goals.”
