Breakthrough Charter Schools
Breakthrough Charter Schools is the highest-rated network of tuition-free, public charter schools in Cleveland. Our schools are nationally recognized for our innovative educational models and proven results. We have high expectations for everyone – children and adults – and believe in every student. Like all the best public charter schools, we put children's needs first, and make sure every child receives a high-quality education to prepare them for success in college and life.

Our mission is to develop a growing network of distinctive school options that prepare Cleveland area students for success in life. Our schools have been honored by local, state, and national organizations for excellence in teaching, leadership, and student achievement. We currently serve more than 3,000+ K-8 students across 12 campuses.

We have four distinct models: Citizens; Intergenerational; Preps; and Expeditionary. The diversity of our school models allows us to offer real school choice to our community, including students, families and educators.

  • Expeditionary Model: A hands-on, expeditionary approach to learning has changed the way our students learn and interact with our city. Our mission is to prepare our middle school students to lead in academics, service, and civic engagement during high school, college, and beyond.
