Meet Justin, a recent graduate.

Meet Justin Alvis, one of our many alumni going places.


Justin came to Breakthrough Schools in sixth grade. With the support of his teachers and community, he earned a scholarship to St. Ignatius High School. He is now going to Hampton University, and is on his way to a bright future in public relations.

Where is your child going?

No matter how big your child’s dreams are, a great education will help make them a reality. Our schools were ranked #1 in Reading and #4 in Math in the United States by CREDO at Stanford (Reading Growth & Math Growth Among Urban Public Charter School Networks in US).
