  • Mission:
  • All motivated, under-resourced students of Miami-Dade County will have access to excellent educational opportunities, graduate from high school and attend college.

  • Overview:
  • Breakthrough Miami is an eight-year, tuition-free academic enrichment program that provides motivated middle-school students from underserved communities with the tools they need to achieve their most ambitious goals in life. Our students-teaching-students internship engages outstanding older students as teachers, mentors and role models, so that our scholars enter and thrive in college-prep high schools and enroll in college. This award-winning program serves 1,000 talented students. More than 95 percent of our students attend public middle- and high-schools in Miami-Dade County, while participating in our enrichment activities on five independent school sites -- Ransom Everglades, Miami Country Day School, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Palmer Trinity School and University of Miami.

  • History:
  • Twenty-one years ago, Summerbridge Miami was established on the campus of Ransom Everglades School to help talented middle-school students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds "break through" the barriers of race, culture and socio-economics with an academic enrichment summer program taught by high-school and college student interns.
    In 2007, the program – rebranded as Breakthrough Miami — was recognized for its excellence by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, with a grant of $3.25 million to expand to serve more students and families in need.

    Today, Breakthrough Miami serves more than 1,000 students from across Miami-Dade County on sites located at five independent schools and one public charter school, and the program has become an eight-year program, guiding students from the 5th grade through high school graduation. Our sites are:

    -- Ransom Everglades School, Coconut Grove

    -- Carrollton School for the Sacred Heart, Coconut Grove

    -- Miami Country Day School, Miami Shores

    -- The Cushman School, Miami

    -- Palmer Trinity School, Palmetto Bay

    -- International Studies Charter High School
