We’re excited to share Breakthrough New York’s response to the college admissions scandal, which underscores the value of organizations like Breakthrough. Breakthrough students already possess the qualities necessary to get to college – they have the dream, the drive, and the dedication, they just need the access. When given the chance, the success of these students is undeniable. New York’s statement reads:  “year after year, all of our rising 9th graders get into college prep high schools and all of our high school seniors get into to excellent four-year colleges. Most importantly, our students can truly say that each and every accomplishment they earn is their own.”

We are proud to stand with Breakthrough New York in their commitment to help colleges and the New York City Department of Education create a more equitable system when it comes to access to a quality education.
