  • Revolution Prep is excited to offer our families a 3-night webinar series hosted by Peter Van Buskirk, a veteran of the selective college admission process with 35 years of experience — 12 of them as the Dean of Admission and Financial Aid at Franklin & Marshall College.  Peter travels the country speaking to groups of students and parents to help families find student-centered solutions in college planning. His high-energy, interactive programs bring much-needed transparency into the selection process and provide students the tools to identify and be admitted to colleges that are the “best fit” for them.  We hope you will join us for these exciting and informative events by registering here https://www.revolutionprep.com/webinars/
