Mission & Vision


The mission of Breakthrough at Kent Denver is two-fold: first, to increase the educational and social opportunities of motivated, financially under-resourced, middle and high school students through a quality year-round program, and second, to motivate and train talented college students for careers in education.


We envision a nation populated by transformational learning communities, where equitable access to excellent opportunities propels aspiring students on their path to college and aspiring teachers on their path to the classroom.

“What made me apply for Breakthrough was the ability to continue to work to get ahead and be more prepared for the following year. One thing I now really love about being a part of Breakthrough is the teachers and full community. All of the teachers are very loving and caring and as a student they make me feel valued and supported.”
