Advanced Placement Summer Institute

The Advanced Placement Summer Institute is a program that offers high school teachers the opportunity to improve their skills through short workshop courses, offered for graduate credit or audit. REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2018 INSTITUTE.

While our courses focus on curricular and pedagogical development and review of Advanced Placement course and exam material for new and experienced teachers, the opportunity to connect with fellow educators offered by the Institute is equally valuable. As a participant, you will discuss and share teaching methods and materials, all while gaining graduate credit and/or personal development hours.

The 2018 Institute will be held July 30 - Aug. 3. Please contact us at or at 718-862-7209 with any questions. The Director of the Institute is Dr. Bridget Chalk.
