Brantley Dean is a graduate of both Baylor University and Duke University. Before joining Breakaway Prep, he spent a decade in higher education. He worked for offices with cool names like “Academy for Leader Development” and “Residence Life and Housing Services” (okay, so maybe that name isn’t so cool) and received a Master’s in Higher Education. He later worked on a doctorate in late ancient history where he spent his time getting to know a bunch of dead guys who loved to write in Greek and Latin (so fun). His time spent on the “other side” greatly informs how he advises families about the challenges and opportunities of the college process. Brantley has spent thousands of hours working one-on-one with hundreds of families just like yours in the Summit and surrounding area. Both southern transplants, Brantley and his wife Caroline live in Summit with their dog Tex…yes, the dog is named for what Brantley maintains is a great state (Caroline isn’t so sure).
Where We Are
"I am truly grateful to Breakaway for the second time. They helped my older son, Dan, get into Carnegie Mellon University, his first choice college. They have now helped my younger son, Alex, get into his first choice college, the University of Delaware. He is very happy and I am thrilled that he is going to the college he wanted to go to."Robyne L., Mother of Alex, University of Delaware
