Mission

Breakthrough’s CLA East is located at its Citizens East K-8 Campus. We prepare our middle schoolers to lead in academics, service, and civic engagement during high school, college, and beyond. Our distinct EL Education – real-world learning – model is perfect for middle school because it engages students in hands-on, active, project-based learning culminating in a capstone project. CLA East is a proud Facing History and Ourselves school. We have a phrase at our school that drives everything we do: “Education is Urgent.” We welcome parent visits.

Special Programs

What makes us special:
CLA East believes in supporting the “whole child” and offers after-school clubs and
athletics including football, soccer, volleyball, and basketball for both boys and girls.
CLA East provides after-school tutoring and enrichment, and has a community
partnership with the Doan Avenue Salvation Army that has a robust after school
program including academic support and recreational activities. CLA East is
cultivating an active parent organization and started its first year with 100% parent
participation in student-led conferences.
