AP® Professional Development
East Institutes is a managing team advocating and providing AP® Summer Institutes endorsed by the College Board® in association with Central Michigan University. Advanced Placement® Summer Institutes operated by East Institutes are located primarily within the Midwest. However, we also have a unique ability to provide Advanced Placement® Professional Development for those whom have teachers and other professionals interested in training but may find it more cost effective to host development training at their location. Simply put, we will come to you.
Committed to doing what we can to support the best AP® teaching in the country, we bring outstanding consultants, nationally-known experts in their AP® courses, and we provide a meeting place where you can spend productive, focused time with them. We think this matters; heck, we know it does. We've seen it work.
