The Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institute, is a College Board endorsed program that provides professional development to AP teachers. Through the Advanced Placement™ program, College Board provides a way for high school students to earn free college credits while taking high school courses. Taking Advanced Placement courses exposes students to college level coursework and begins preparing them to think more critically.

The AP Summer Institute provides teachers the opportunity to learn how to teach their course from College Board-approved consultants. These consultants are experts in their subject areas and work with College Board as AP readers, graders, and table leaders. Not only is this an opportunity to learn directly from College Board experts, but also from other instructors from all over the world! This 4-day intensive training is designed to enhance the AP teacher’s skills, ability, and knowledge of their subject regardless of their experience level. Hosted by the David C. Anchin Center for the Advancement of Teaching, the Advanced Placement Summer Institute at the University of South Florida (USF) offers a unique learning experience for teachers interested in expanding their knowledge of AP course content, structure, and methodology. In addition, the workshops afford teachers the opportunity to interact with colleagues and to discuss issues and concerns surrounding the AP courses they will teach. The courses provide training for both new and experienced AP teachers. Attendees of the AP Summer Institute at USF leave feeling reenergized for the upcoming school year.
