St. Margaret’s Episcopal School is the lead sponsor of Breakthrough SJC, sponsoring and hosting Breakthrough SJC since the school founded the program in 2006 as part of its commitment to community service and academic excellence.
St. Margaret’s underwrites more than 50 percent of Breakthrough’s annual operating costs, including facilities usage, transportation, utilities, community outreach and fundraising, and administrative salaries and operations.

Additionally, St. Margaret’s has a strong commitment to financial aid, awarding nearly $3 million annually, and offers scholarships specifically for San Juan Capistrano students entering high school.
