Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano supports students from middle school to college graduation through tuition-free, college access programming. By providing academic enrichment opportunities and support, we are changing the trajectory for students whose backgrounds are underrepresented in higher education. Nearly all Breakthrough SJC students are from low-income backgrounds and will be the first in their families to graduate from college. With Breakthrough SJC, students realize their potential to excel in high school and graduate from college.
