Our Mission:


Breakthrough Silicon Valley's dual mission reflects our desire to positively change the path of each of our student’s lives, to increase the number of talented teachers joining the education workforce, and to have a beneficial impact on our community.


To that end, Breakthrough Silicon Valley:

  • Prepares academically motivated middle school students with limited educational opportunities for success in rigorous college-preparatory high school programs and four-year colleges, and
  • Prepares outstanding high school and college students to enter careers in education.
What We Do:
Breakthrough students commit to a six-year college readiness program that includes a variety of academic and counseling services and Breakthrough teachers commit to intensive summer teaching internships. Our innovative Students Teaching Students model partners middle-school students with college and high school students who serve as teachers, role models and mentors, providing real-life examples that it’s ‘cool to be smart’. Breakthrough boasts outstanding results: 96% of Breakthrough students enroll in four–year universities and 78% of Breakthrough teachers, many of whom were Breakthrough students, go on to pursue careers in education.
