Professional Learning for New Pre-AP Teachers

Meeting the program’s professional learning requirement—and beyond.

Start your free Online Foundational Modules in Pre-AP Classroom.

Before starting their Pre-AP course, all new teachers of Pre-AP must complete a professional learning requirement.

Program Requirements

  1. Complete the free, on-demand Online Foundational Module Series through Pre-AP Classroom. The series, which runs 12−20 hours, is available year-round. However, it’s recommended that all modules be completed before the start of the school year. CEUs are granted upon completion.

    OR attend an in-person Pre-AP Summer Institute. At these four-day institutes educators explore course materials, plan their course, and develop connections within the Pre-AP community. CEUs are granted upon completion.
  2. Complete at least one on-demand Online Scoring Module (free and available through Pre-AP Classroom). At least one must be completed, although we encourage teachers to engage with all of them.

Optional Additional Learning for New Teachers

New Teacher Virtual Cohorts

Extend your learning while completing the Online Foundational Module Series. The Virtual Cohort consists of four live, online summer classes of 90 minutes each. Additional fall class options are also available. Continuing education units (CEUs) can be earned by completing all summer or fall classes. The cost is $175 per attendee.* Registration is now open.

*Registration fees are subject to change annually.

Online Scoring Modules

In addition to the one required scoring module, complete additional scoring modules to further your understanding of examining and scoring student work for Pre-AP performance tasks. Scoring modules are free and available on-demand through Pre-AP Classroom.

From mid-June through the end of August, Pre-AP offers a range of free webinars. Webinars were hosted live by College Board staff, along with Pre-AP teachers and administrators and then recorded and posted on Pre-AP Classroom under the Professional Learning tab within each course.
