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.

 UPDATE: The 2020 Manhattan College APSI will be offered online.

Registration is now closed for the 2020 Summer Institute.

The 2020 Institute will be held online from August 3-7. Please contact us at or at 718-862-7209 with any questions. The Director of the Institute is Dr. Bridget Chalk.

Our AP Summer Institute offers top-tier training in the instruction of Advanced Placement classes. We provide a week of professional education and rejuvenation to our participants. This summer marks our 39th year of providing instruction in AP subjects, for graduate credit or audit, and we are proud to welcome back our talented consultants, all experts in their fields, year after year.

Teachers who do attend an AP Summer Institute in 2020 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.
