Due to covid-19, College Board is not scheduling in-person professional learning at this time. All professional learning for Pre-AP Courses will be virtual in 2021.

The summer before their first year implementing a Pre-AP course, at least one leader from each school site is required to participate in professional learning offered by College Board. There are two options to meet the professional learning requirement: the in-person Pre-AP Summer Institute and the Pre-AP Online Foundational Leadership Workshop. Both options provide continuing education units to leaders who complete the training.

New Pre-AP leaders completing the Online Foundational Leadership Workshop have the option to join a New Leader Virtual Cohort, which extends learning from the on-demand  Leadership Workshop. These live, virtual sessions provide an opportunity for leaders to further understand the instructional design and program requirements of Pre-AP and to collaborate with Pre-AP National Faculty and peers. Participants will be eligible for Continuing Education Units. Registration is open and a variety of dates and times are available. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and space is limited.
