Summer Partnership with Breakthrough Central Texas

Breakthrough Austin students start their day by giving each other high fives.

The undergraduate certification program begins the summer before your senior year. Alongside your new cohort of aspiring teachers, you will take two summer classes and participate in a full-time, paid internship as a teacher at Breakthrough Central Texas.

Through the Urban Teachers partnership with Breakthrough Central Texas, your first field experience will be leading your own small class of middle school students who are working to become the first in their families to graduate from college.
