Breakthrough Santa Fe welcomed our first students in 2004 on the campus of Santa Fe Prep. The School initiated the Breakthrough program as part of its âLocal Groundâ initiative, seeking to serve the broader Santa Fe community with what the School does best: provide an ambitious course of study in a warm, nurturing environment. Prep supports the program financially and institutionally and considers Breakthrough an integral part of the Schoolâs mission. In addition, Breakthrough Santa Fe provides high school and college-age young adults, who come from around the country, with a rewarding experience as teachers and mentors. We work in close collaboration with the Santa Fe Public Schools and other groups that serve our cityâs youth.
