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.

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.
