Free Webinar Series

Revolution Prep is offering SPHS families a FREE webinar series hosted by Peter Van Buskirk, a 25-year veteran of the college admission process. 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.

Parents and students are invited to attend.
