2019 Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI)

The AP® Summer Institute (APSI) Workshop is endorsed by College Board and designed to aid the professional development of teachers, counselors, and administrators who are involved with Advanced Placement (AP®) courses.

All classes will be conducted on the campus of Auburn University. Specific classroom locations will be announced when that information becomes finalized.

APSI is a collaborative effort between:
