Advanced Placement ® Summer Institute
July 13-16, 2020


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 skills

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 campus.

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.
