Mission Statement


Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano has a unique dual mission:

  • To increase academic opportunity for highly motivated, underserved students and
    put them on the trajectory of a successful college path, and
  • To inspire and develop the next generation of teachers and educational leaders.

Breakthrough is dedicated to its mission and serving the San Juan Capistrano community. Our unique models, “Students Teaching Students” and “Teachers Training Teachers” unlock the extraordinary potential for students and teachers of all ages to engage each other in learning, teaching and leading. The result of these successful models is a cycle of reciprocal learning in which both the student and the teacher increase the odds of success in middle school, high school, college and beyond.
