BREAKTHROUGH’S (VIRTUAL!) SUMMER PROGRAM

Come visit!

To ensure the health and safety of our community, our 2021 Summer Program will be online again this summer. This summer will highlight rigorous academics, community meetings, advisory time, clubs, and – a BTGB favorite – endless cheers and songs! We will also safely come together as a community with outdoor, in-person, team-building gatherings throughout the summer.

Summer Program Visits are an awesome way to see our summer program in action. We hope you can join us!
