THE 12- YEAR EXPERIENCE
Starting in middle school, Breakthrough provides extended learning, personal advising and leadership experiences through the entire phase of a student’s schooling (middle school, high school, and college).
THE SCHOOLWIDE POSTSECONDARY
The Schoolwide Program is a year-round advising services partnership that supports students to realize their postsecondary goals by providing direct advising services to every junior and senior at a campus. Additionally, the PSAP works with the campus through capacity-building support to shift the goal for students beyond high school graduation to success in higher education.
Immigration Legal Aid
Immigrant students with an authorization letter from Breakthrough Central Texas can receive free legal advice from Catholic Charities at its Austin location. These services include a comprehensive initial consultation, advice on applying for and renewing DACA, TPS or other immigration visas and advice on many immigration legal matters by certified Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) lawyers.
Please contact your Breakthrough Advisor to obtain the authorization letter and information sheet for how to make an appointment with Catholic Charities.
