The Wheeler School

Breakthrough Providence was founded at, and continues to be supported by, The Wheeler School. BTP operates on the Wheeler campus during the summer and throughout the school year.

Founded in 1889, The Wheeler School is an independent day school for girls and boys from Nursery through Grade Twelve in Providence, Rhode Island. Central to the School’s philosophy is the assumption that all of us, students and teachers alike, can and should contribute to and draw from the extraordinary energy and vitality which is characteristic of this community.

The main campus is located on the East Side at the top of Providence’s College Hill near nationally ranked Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. A second campus, known as The Farm, is located nearby in Seekonk, MA

The Wheeler School has been a vital partner and generous host as we’ve worked to achieve our mission of expanding college access and cultivating a pipeline of educators in Rhode Island.
