AP® Professional Development
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 means in which you can spend productive, focused time with them. We think this matters; heck, we know it does. We've seen it work.
Our national crisis has not diminished the fact that AP teacher training is an important component of student success in AP classes. APSI remains as important as a professional development opportunity as ever. Due to continuing international concerns with COVID-19, the College Board has approved the delivery of our services via online to support AP teachers who need what we offer: training, teacher community and professional confidence and support. The fact that we are isolated does not mean that we can't or don't need the value that APSI provides.
With that in mind, our 2021 events will again be offered in an online format. We are doing this with the intention of providing the same concern for quality and the same commitment to AP that you have come to experience and expect from us whether you are attending online or if you were able to attend in person.
East Institutes is a managing team advocating and providing AP® Summer Institutes endorsed by the College Board® in association with Central Michigan University. We have presented AP professional development since 2015.
Online Registration is Open! Join us in 2021!
