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.



“Breakthrough is a fun place especially if you want to make friends, I made a lot of friends throughout the summer. I like the education because they actually try to help you with the stuff you need help with. All my brothers came here so I wanted to continue. I learn more stuff, it’s not regular school. They make it fun to learn.”
