Community: The Heart of Breakthrough
The idea of Breakthrough Charter School began with parents and community members. An effort to revitalize the community of Marion was formed with Main Street Marion, and through that effort the realization was made that an additional education option was needed.
We image Breakthrough serving as a community hub in Marion. We plan to offer a number of services to community members, including GED courses, workforce development opportunities, new parent/early childhood development courses, community social activities, and more!
We also plan to partner with a number of organizations inside and outside of Perry County to provide various resources. While we have already secured partnerships with organizations like Marion Military Institute, Judson College, and Main Street Marion, we are hoping to cultivate strong relationships with other organizations, including C.H.O.I.C.E., Birmingham Talks, Breakthrough Birmingham, and more!
