2024 APSI Registration opens February 1, 2024

About

The AP® Institute at Millsaps is endorsed by the College Board. The Millsaps College Department of Executive Education administers the program and has been helping AP teachers and pre-AP teachers hone their teaching skills and content knowledge since 1983. The Institute prepares high school teachers to teach college credit courses at the high school level.

Millsaps College, in cooperation with the College Board, is pleased to offer two Advanced Placement® Summer Institutes in the summer of 2024; one online in June and one in-person on our beautiful campus in July, for new and experienced high school teachers currently teaching or preparing to teach AP® courses.

Participants will enjoy four days of hands-on instruction, exploring the latest methods and curriculum topics* in Advanced Placement® education, concluding their experience with a renewed level of enthusiasm for the AP® program; equipped with new ideas and resources for use in their classrooms.

*Pre-AP® topics or middle school–level subjects will not be covered.

2024 APSI Dates

Preparation

While professional development is not required to prepare for 2024 AP® course updates and new classroom resources, the College Board encourages all AP® teachers to take advantage of any professional development offered by AP®.

Teachers who plan to attend any AP® Summer Institute should be able to:

  • Understand the Course
    • The course framework defines the scope of the course and specifies what students must know and do to be successful on the AP® Exam.
  • Plan the Course
    • Sequencing, pacing, and scaffolding are essential for building students’ understanding and their ability to transfer and apply knowledge and skills.
  • Teach the Course
    • Effective instructional strategies help students to develop mastery of course content and skills over time.
  • Assess Student Progress and Understanding
    • Learning requires time, practice, and regular feedback.
