Overview


Mission Statement

Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano has a unique dual mission:
1) To increase academic opportunity for highly motivated, underserved students and put them on the trajectory of a successful college path, and
2) To inspire and develop the next generation of teachers and educational leaders.


Background Statement

Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano was founded in 2006 by St. Margaret’s Episcopal School under the leadership of its third headmaster, Marcus D. Hurlbut, who recognized the need for academic enrichment for low-income, at-risk students in San Juan Capistrano and saw an opportunity for the St. Margaret’s community to help.


Breakthrough SJC was launched with 22 rising seventh grade students from San Juan Capistrano’s Marco Forster Middle School and six intern teachers in the summer of 2006 on the campus of St. Margaret’s Episcopal School. The program grew rapidly from then. Since its inception Breakthrough SJC has served 264 students and has trained 166 teaching fellows.


Impact Statement

Recent Accomplishments:

  • 94% of Breakthrough SJC's Class of 2015 is enrolled in college.
  • Breakthrough SJC middle school increased their reading level by one grade during our six week summer program.
  • In 2015 Breakthrough SJC was featured on the front page of the Capistrano Dispatch and was well received by the Capistrano Unified School Board District, the San Juan Capistrano City Council and the San Juan Capistrano Chamber of Commerce.

Goals:

  • Increase the number of Breakthrough SJC students enrolled in four year colleges.
  • Recruit  rising seventh graders to join Breakthrough SJC.
  • Increase the number of donors from the local community by continuously improving community outreach and awareness.  

Needs Statement

Breakthrough SJC's most pressing needs are: 

  • Funding- Approximately 50 percent of Breakthrough SJC’s budget is supported by gifts and grants from individuals, businesses and foundations, while the remainder of the program’s operating expenses and salaries are supported by St. Margaret’s Episcopal School.
  • Local college students to volunteer as tutors for Breakthrough SJC high school students.
  • Local community members to mentor Breakthrough SJC juniors through the college application process.
