Now offering

Remote Learning Centers


We are excited to officially announce that we have partnered with Open Doors Academy to offer Remote Learning Centers for the upcoming school year. These centers will be safe, out-of-home spaces for a limited number of scholars to do their remote learning. Please find all current details and application information below.


ODA has delivered high-quality, out-of-school programming to kids across Greater Cleveland since 2002 and with Breakthrough students since 2013. The ODA team provides support for kids' academic, social, and emotional development, as well as support and programming for parents and families.

Remote Learning Center OVERVIEW


This is a free service offered to enrolled Breakthrough families who need a safe and supervised environment for your child to participate in remote learning.


Breakthrough's Remote Learning program is delivered by Breakthrough teachers online just as if you were at home and will be supervised and supported by in-person ODA Staff.


We are following all CDC guidelines, and masks are required. To allow proper social distancing, there is a 9:1 student to adult ratio.

8am - 4pm

Remote Learning Centers are open from Tuesday through Friday, 8am–4pm. The day includes free breakfast and lunch, as well as enrichment programming.

Common Questions

What are Remote Learning Centers (RLCs)?

RLCs are safe, supervised out-of-home locations where Breakthrough scholars can do their remote learning.

Why is Breakthrough offering RLCs?

We are working to support our families in as many ways as we can during these challenging times. We have designed RLCs to provide safe, supervised, and distraction-free places for scholars to learn.

Who is eligible for RLCs?

Any enrolled Breakthrough family is eligible to sign up for an RLC; however, spaces are limited due to social distancing and other health and safety considerations. Current families who are interested should complete the interest form below and will then be contacted to complete registration.

*If demand exceeds capacity, preference will be given to scholars without an adult at home during the school day.

When will RLCs be open?

We currently expect the program to start a few weeks after the school year starts.

What will the hours be for the RLCs?

Scholars should plan to arrive at school between 7:30AM-8AM.  Dismissal begins at 4PM. Scholars enrolled at the RLC are expected to attend every day for the full day.

Where will RLCs be located? Can I pick which RLC to attend?

RLCs are operated at six of our Breakthrough campuses. Except in very limited circumstances, scholars will attend the RLC at their home campus. Families of Citizens Leadership Academy scholars should note that the CLA RLC is operating from our Citizens Academy Campus.

Will transportation be provided?

No. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing transportation.

My child has an IEP.  Will the RLCs provide additional support services?

The Breakthrough Exceptional Student Education team is responsible for working with school staff and partners to ensure that all exceptional students receive the services and support they need during School at Home.  This is coordinated separately from the Remote Learning Centers, and Remote Learning Center staff are not responsible for providing specific support services that may be included in a scholar’s IEP.  If you have questions about your scholar’s support service plan, we encourage you to reach out directly to your school’s principal for additional information.

How do I register for RLCs?
Complete the interest form below and a member of the Breakthrough or ODA staff will follow up to help you complete the required registration packet.  Please note that grades at some campuses are currently full and your scholar may be added to the waitlist.  We are actively managing the waitlist and will contact you as soon as a spot is available.

Remote Learning Center Interest Form


We have not yet finalized where the RLCs will be operated; however, it is likely they will be located at six of our campuses. We are asking that you include all locations you would be able to attend. We will make final determinations based on demand and availability.
