You are invited to join Breakthrough Manchester for a new and innovative event "Are You Smarter Than a Breakthrough Student?" on Tuesday, May 8 at Southern NH University Dining Center from 5:00-7:30 p.m. This is a unique and exciting event for Breakthrough Manchester, in which you can test your knowledge in rounds of trivia, enjoy great food, interact with our students, and experience first-hand the Breakthrough Manchester spirit! Come prepared to be challenged and see how much you remember from your middle and high school years. You’ll compete against other teams of adults, but don’t worry, a Breakthrough student will be nearby as your lifeline!
Breakthrough Manchester is an award-winning program that provides six continuous years of tuition-free academic enrichment and support for bright students in Manchester who have limited opportunities. The Derryfield School initially established Breakthrough (originally called Summerbridge) in Manchester in 1991, and the school continues to host the summer session for middle school students on its campus each year.
