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 will be a free service offered to enrolled Breakthrough families in need of a safe and supervised environment for your child.


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


All CDC guidelines will be followed and masks are required. To allow proper social distancing, there will be a 9:1 student to adult ratio.

8am - 4pm

Our current plan is to operate Tuesday through Friday, 8am–4pm. The day will include free breakfast and lunch, as well as enrichment programming.

Common Questions

What are Remote Learning Centers (RLCs)?

These will be 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 hope RLCs can 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, we will only be able to offer a certain number of spaces due to social distancing. In order to be eligible, please complete the required registration below if you are interested and in need. Seats will be limited.

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

Will transportation be provided?
No. Parents/guardians are responsible for providing transportation.

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?
Our current plan is for RLCs to operate Tuesday through Friday, 8am–4pm.

Where will RLCs be located?
We are currently considering RLCs to be located at six Breakthrough campuses; however, campuses will be determined by demand and preference.

Can I pick which RLC to attend?

In the application below, you will be asked to indicate your most preferred location and other locations you could be able to get your child to on a daily basis.

After registering, you will be assigned a building. Our first choice is to have you attend the building you would normally attend if the school was in person, but building demand will indicate where you will ultimately be placed.

How do I register for RLCs?
Complete the required form below and we will connect you with ODA to complete your registration.


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.
