Advanced Placement Summer Institute

The Advanced Placement Institute is a summer program that offers advanced placement high school teachers the opportunity to improve their skills through a series of short workshop courses, offered for college credit or audit.

While our courses focus on curricular and pedagogical development and review of the AP material, connecting with fellow teachers is equally enriching. As a participant, you will discuss and share teaching methods and materials, all while gaining graduate credit and personal development hours.

The Institute is usually offered during the first week of August. 

Registration will open again in February 2017.
