Preparing for High School

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Our first-ever class of eighth graders has been working hard since May, getting ready to submit high school applications later this fall. They’re taking an SSAT prep class, crafting personal statements, refining the list of schools to which they’ll apply, and hearing from admissions directors at top-notch high schools including University, Urban, and St. Ignatius. This work is the latest stage of our expansion, designed to ensure all Breakthrough students attend a top-tier high school and are well prepared for college immediately after grade twelve. Kudos to our eighth graders on their hard work, and special thanks to our high school partners and the many generous donors who have made this work possible.
