Breakthrough received the “Excellence in Education Award” from Manor Independent School District in recognition for our exceptional leadership in providing innovative educational programs for middle school and high school youth.
In 2011, Breakthrough began partnering with Manor Independent School District to expand its programs and services into the district, recruiting its first class of sixty rising 6th graders. These students began the program attending Breakthrough’s rigorous Summer Program at Manor New Tech High School, participated in comprehensive year-round after school and Saturday programming, and were exposed to college going role models.
Since the start of Breakthrough programs in Manor, 100 rising 6th graders have been admitted into the program each year, resulting in nearly 600 students in grades 6 – 12. Breakthrough is excited to have its first group of high school graduates in 2018, and assist them in continuing their journeys to and through college until they walk across the stage at college graduation.
