AP Summer Institute

2020 AP Summer Institute

With over 20 years of experience providing AP® educators with high-quality courses and valuable networking opportunities, Goucher College is delighted to invite you to register for our 2020 Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI).

During Weeks 1 and 2, our APSI sessions each take place over only four days in June—from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. In July, our APSI and AP Capstone programs take place over 4.5 days during Week 3—running from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday. College Board materials and lunch are included in your tuition. You'll get the preparation you need and enough time to take it all in without cramming.

All levels of experience welcome

Whether you are a new, recent (less than three years), or experienced (three or more years) AP teacher, we'll be able to help. You self-select into which group you fit best, and get the most out of courses tailored to your level and needs.
