About Breakthrough Schools

Breakthrough Schools is the highest-performing network of free, public charter schools in Cleveland, Ohio for the second year in a row. Our nationally recognized network of schools was formed in 2010 by three of the highest-performing, non-selective, college preparatory, urban public charter schools in Cleveland — Citizens Academy, E Prep, and The Intergenerational School. We are building upon our successes by opening new Citizens, Preps, and Intergenerational schools throughout Cleveland. Our vision is to further Greater Cleveland’s transformation by providing distinctive school options for no fewer than 6,000 children in 19 schools by 2020. We currently have 10 campuses serving nearly 3,300 students throughout Cleveland.
