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.

While professional development is not required to prepare for 2019-20 AP course updates and new classroom resources, the College Board encourages AP teachers to take advantage of the professional development offered by the AP. Based on survey data, teachers across the country have found AP professional development to be extremely valuable. 

The 2019 Institute will be held July 29 - Aug. 2. Please contact us at or at 718-862-7209 with any questions. The Director of the Institute is Dr. Bridget Chalk.

Registration is now closed for 2019.

Teachers who do attend an AP Summer Institute in 2019 should be able to: 

  • Understand the Course
    • The course framework defines the scope of the course and specifies what students must know and do to be successful on the AP Exam.
  • Plan the Course
    • Sequencing, pacing, and scaffolding are essential for building students’ understanding and their ability to transfer and apply knowledge and skills.
  • Teach the Course
    • Effective instructional strategies help students to develop a mastery of course content and skills over time.
  • Assess Student Progress and Understanding
    • Learning requires time, practice, and regular feedback.

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 2019 Institute will be held July 29 - Aug. 2. Please contact us at or at 718-862-7209 with any questions. The Director of the Institute is Dr. Bridget Chalk.
