Mission

Breakthrough’s Citizens Academy is proud to be a long-standing elementary school in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood. 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.

Special Programs

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.
