Breakthrough’s Citizens Academy East
elementary is located at our Citizens
East K-8 Campus. Our mission is to
produce learners who exemplify academic
excellence and responsible citizenship.
Our vision is for every student to graduate
from college and become a productive
and civically engaged member of society.
Our Citizenship Curriculum, an integral
part of character development, is based
upon seven virtues: Responsibility, respect,
perseverance, honesty, generosity,
courage, and loyalty. We celebrate
students who exemplify the virtues in
many ways, including Citizens of the
Month assemblies throughout the year.
We believe every student can excel, no exceptions.
• Unique citizenship-based curriculum drives our school.
• Year-round Black History + Black Excellence curriculum.
• We believe 21st-century skills are essential; every student has a laptop and
technology is integrated into instruction, such as programming Lego robots.
• High academic and behavioral expectations are the foundation of our success.
• Each child’s individualized academic progress is tracked by a
“My Achievement Plan.”
• We offer multiple after-school programs and extracurricular activities.
