Breakthrough Louisville gives your child the opportunity to attend a free, 6-week academic program for 2-3 summers.  The classes at Summerbridge are made up of 6-8 students, which allows for strong individual attention from the teachers.  At Breakthrough Louisville the students begin work on the next year’s curriculum, which gives them a head-start on the school year.  All of the learning and teaching is hands-on and creative, providing the students with an alternative learning experience.

School Year Tutoring Program

If a student receives a C or below for more than two 6-week report periods, they may not be able to return to the program.  If a student receives a C or below for three 6-week report periods, he/she will be permanently dismissed from the program.
