ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017
What a wonderful time to join the Breakthrough Atlanta family! In my early weeks as Executive Director, I’ve found myself constantly inspired, not only by the aspirations and accomplishments of our students and teaching fellows, but also by the dedication of our staff, advisory board members, partner schools, the Lovett community, volunteers, and donors. Breakthrough Atlanta is working to close the opportunity gap by launching highly motivated students from under-resourced communities on the path to college and building a strong pipeline of future teachers. We believe in the power of education to change young people’s lives radically, and we are passionate in our belief that every young person deserves access to an excellent education and the encouragement to succeed. Breakthrough Atlanta’s core six-year program model is an academically intense, year-round program that provides educational enrichment opportunities to metro Atlanta public school middle and high school students, while simultaneously offering a hands-on teaching internship experience to college students who will be the teachers of tomorrow. Breakthrough Atlanta’s long-serving model of students teaching students and teachers training teachers offers impressive benefits. The Breakthrough program puts relatable young adults at the head of the classroom to act as mentors to the students they serve, demonstrating that college is within reach, and it provides aspiring teachers with valuable classroom experience and thorough instruction by professional educators. It’s an honor to be a part of such a great organization and to serve Atlanta’s children with you. I’d like to thank my predecessor, Monica Rodgers, for laying the groundwork over her 10 years of service. And, thank you for the many ways you’ve supported Breakthrough Atlanta over our 22-year history and for your continued partnership.

Dear Breakthrough Atlanta Community: As we move beyond our 20th anniversary, Breakthrough Atlanta continues to fulfill its dual mission of providing a path to college for middle school students from metro Atlanta’s public schools while also inspiring the next generation of teachers. In the summer of 2017, Breakthrough Atlanta had the wonderful privilege of serving 233 middle school students and 56 Teaching Fellows between our sites at The Lovett School and Atlanta Youth Academy. Our students thrived through a summer of a rigorous curriculum in math, science, social studies, and English. This year, through a partnership with the SunTrust Foundation, we also introduced a new STEM curriculum. We continue to see significant gains in every subject area through our post testing! The summer of 2017 saw 65 of our rising 9th graders in the Breakthrough Atlanta Leadership Academy, which ensures that the transition from middle school to high school is seamless. All of these support systems help our students reach their ultimate goal: college. We know that we would not exist to serve our purpose without the generosity of each and every one of our donors. We are so grateful for your support, and hope that you know that your support makes a difference in the lives of our students. There are so many who deserve special thanks and acknowledgment—the fabulous Breakthrough team (the engine behind our powerful mission!), our dedicated Advisory Board members, the many public school teachers and staff and other community partners, and our Breakthrough families for their commitment and support. We are so grateful to The Lovett School for hosting this life-changing program and our partners at the Atlanta Youth Academy for their incredible partnership. Breakthrough Atlanta is a tremendous organization that is truly transforming the lives of our students every day. It is my privilege and honor to be a part of this organization, and I encourage you to come out and visit the program over the summer so that you can see firsthand the difference we are making in these children’s lives. We applaud the courage, commitment, and motivation of our students, who teach and inspire us as they rise to the challenge every day, striving for excellence and pursuing their college goals.
With sincerest gratitude,
David Ghegan Advisory Board Chair

Breakthrough Atlanta has been putting students on the path to college since 1996.
In the 2016-2017 school year Breakthrough Atlanta served over
middle and high school students, and gave
a hands-on teaching experience. 5
In the past five years, Breakthrough Atlanta has more than doubled the number of students it serves.
100% of Breakthrough Atlanta students graduate from high school, compared to the Atlanta Public Schools graduation rate of 77%.
95% of Breakthrough Atlanta students enroll in a college or university.
WHY BREAKTHROUGH Breakthrough Atlanta’s purpose is to reconcile the disparity between two unacceptable truths: 1. The gap in earnings between young adults who have a college degree and those who don’t is wider than ever.
2. There are long-standing and complex inequities which disproportionately prevent students of color and students from low-income communities from getting the resources and support they need to attend college at the same rate as their more affluent peers.
Most people need a college degree to succeed in today’s economy. College graduates earn more than twice as much as high school graduates.
82.4% of students from high income families will enroll in college, while only 53.5% of low income students do so.
50% of all people from high-income families earn a bachelor’s degree by age 25, whereas only 10% of people from low-income families do.
These disparities are evident here in Atlanta, where 76.3% of Atlanta Public Schools students qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Breakthrough Atlanta is working to close the opportunity gap by addressing the complex network of factors that contribute to poor academic achievement among underserved students and students of color.
OUR PROGRAMS We provide a six-year, tuition-free, year-round, academically rigorous study skills enrichment program that provides a pathway to college for Atlanta’s middle and high school students. Breakthrough Atlanta’s Summer Program provides rising 7th and 8th grade students with six weeks of academic instruction in math, science, language arts, and social studies. Through an engaging curriculum, students learn material for the upcoming school year and gain study skills that enable them to succeed throughout their academic careers. They are supported by small classes, an advisory system, and active parent involvement. Research indicates that most students from lower-income backgrounds lose about two months of learning over the summer. The rigorous academic acceleration of BTA’s summer session actually reverses summer slide, leading to intellectual growth rather than loss. Breakthrough’s School Year Program continues the investment in students’ educational success. Two Saturdays a month, students attend the School Year Program, which focuses on the academic subjects that are most challenging for them. Students receive enrichment in math and language arts skills, and get one-on-one assistance with their homework and related questions. Rising 9th grade students participate in Breakthrough Atlanta’s 9th Grade Program, which helps them transition successfully from middle school to high school. The program focuses on academic preparation in math and writing, social maturity, and setting and maintaining high expectations throughout high school.
Breakthrough Atlanta’s College Prep Program provides support for students as they navigate the path to college, including college prep seminars, SAT prep classes, community service/volunteer opportunities, and personal mentoring for our students. This program also provides students and families with guidance in all aspects of pre-college planning and the financial aid process to help them make informed decisions. Breakthrough Atlanta’s Teaching Fellows are academically talented college students from around the country, selected through a competitive application process. Under the guidance of experienced professional educators (Instructional Coaches), Teaching Fellows assume primary teaching responsibilities during the program. Because these interns are closer in age and experience, students can relate to them in a time when they are looking for role models. This intensive, hands-on teacher training experience creates a supply of diverse and talented future leaders for the education field
OUR STUDENTS In the 2016-2017 program year, Breakthrough Atlanta served over 500 students from public middle schools and high schools across metro Atlanta. Breakthrough Atlanta students are ambitious young scholars who aspire to go to college but often attend under-resourced schools. Breakthrough Atlanta students and their families make a commitment to participate in the Breakthrough program for six years, from 6th grade through 12th grade. In the end, their dedication pays off: 100% of BTA students graduate from high school, and 95% go on to attend a college or university.

OUR TEACHING FELLOWS Breakthrough Atlanta provides a hands-on teaching internship for students from colleges and universities across the country. Teaching Fellows assume the primary teaching responsibilities for the entire Summer Program under the guidance of professional mentor teachers; they receive over 100 hours of teaching and leadership training, including 75 hours of lead classroom experience. Breakthrough is proud to welcome a diverse group of Teaching Fellows from all academic majors and backgrounds to our classrooms each summer. Many teaching fellows go on to pursue successful careers in education.
