During the week of June 19-22, 2018, high school teachers are invited to participate in a unique training experience. The AP® Summer Institutes are subject-specific professional development opportunities. They provide teachers with the support and training needed to teach AP® courses and to utilize Pre-AP® teaching strategies. Teachers from around the world come together at these institutes to exchange ideas and information about AP® courses and exams.


Who Should Attend?

New AP® teachers, experienced AP® teachers or future AP® teachers for the following AP® classes:

AP® English Language & Composition
AP® English Literature & Composition
AP® U. S. Government & Politics

Math or English teachers that want to learn Pre-AP® strategies to prepare more students to be ready to take AP® Math and English courses should enroll in one of the following sessions.

The College Board is piloting new Pre-AP® designated courses in select schools and districts. The training for those schools is different than the current Pre-AP® training that we are offering at WSU. Our consultants are approved to present the current training content, but we are required by The College Board to include this disclaimer to ensure that teachers at the Pre-AP® pilot schools do not register for our training: Please note that the content of the Pre AP® sessions have not been endorsed by the College Board or reviewed to ensure alignment with the new Pre-AP® courses.
