Breakthrough Public Schools is the highest-performing network of free, public charter schools in Ohio.
Our nationally recognized network of schools was formed in 2010 by the highest-performing, college preparatory, nonprofit public charter schools in Cleveland. We currently have 12 schools serving nearly 3,600 students throughout the city with campuses in Glenville, Hough, University Circle, St Clair - Superior, Collinwood, Lee Harvard, Union Miles, and Cudell.
Our mission is to develop a growing network of distinctive school options that prepare Cleveland area students for success in life. Breakthrough has been recognized as the top-performing network of K-8 schools in Cleveland, honored by local, state, and national organizations for excellence in teaching, leadership, and student achievement.
Our long-term vision is to further Greater Cleveland’s transformation by providing distinctive school options to thousands of Cleveland's K-8 students. Our work, in partnership with CMSD and others, will help the city reach a tipping point towards providing a high-quality education for all.
