Advanced Institutes – Experienced AP Teachers

The Advanced Institute is designed for experienced teachers who have already attended an introductory AP training session and who have taught Advanced Placement for at least two years. This seminar introduces new subject matter while placing a strong emphasis on practical teaching skills that participants can take back to their existing AP programs.

Introductory Institutes – New AP Teachers

Teachers with minimal or no training in Advanced Placement curricula are encouraged to attend the introductory institutes. Topics covered include subject matter content, test construction, pupil and teacher selection, College Board policies and procedures, and preparation and grading of AP tests.

Please Note: All workshop offerings are contingent upon sufficient demand. Please register early to ensure that your subject area will be offered.
