We’re offering educators a new professional learning opportunity called Virtual Foundations Cohorts. This online experience replaces the Pre-AP Summer Institutes, canceled this year due to the covid-19 crisis. These optional, virtual classes are led by our expert National Faculty and have a maximum of 20 participants per cohort. Cohorts will run every two weeks from June 29 through August 7, 2020.

Teachers meet with their cohorts twice a week over the course of two weeks for 90 minutes each session. A variety of dates and times will be available when registration begins on May 18, 2020.

Joining a Virtual Foundations Cohort will extend learning from our Online Foundational Module Series. The table below shows a sample syllabus.
