The AP® and Pre-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.
The Advanced Placement Program® Summer Institute
workshops provide an opportunity for teachers to:
enhance their AP® curriculum
understand the AP® exam structures, and
develop strategies for teaching both content and analytical
The Pre-AP Program is based on the belief that all
students can perform at rigorous academic levels and be prepared
to engage in a higher level of learning.
Ideally, schools or school districts will send teams of teachers
from grade levels 6 – 12.
All AP® and Pre-AP workshops will be held on the Sacramento State
Attendance at all sessions is mandatory to earn a certificate of
completion and credit (where applicable). Workshops are Monday
through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. The session length of 30
hours is mandated by The College Board.®
Participants who attend 90% or more of the Institute will receive
a certificate indicating participation in the workshop. In
compliance with the College Board, participants who miss more
than 10% of the Institute will not be eligible for a certificate.
