Our Students

Breakthrough Greater Boston students love learning and are determined to achieving the goal of four-year college. Reflective of their high levels of motivation, students commit to BTGB for six years in order to realize their dreams.

Each year, Breakthrough Greater Boston serves 10% of seventh through twelfth grade students attending the public schools in Cambridge, as well as students attending TechBoston Academy, Codman Academy, Neighborhood House Charter School, and New Mission High School. Breakthrough recruits in every sixth grade classroom across the city of Cambridge and in our four partner schools in Boston, accepting students who are willing to make a multi-year commitment to the program and who are serious about pursuing the goal of college.

The one in ten children we serve in Cambridge are those young people who need our services the most: 94% of our students are of color (versus 64% district-wide), 81% of our students are low income (versus 45% district-wide), and 77% will be the first generation in their families to go to college.
