Due to the covid-19 crisis, our Pre-AP Summer Institutes for 2020 have been canceled. All teachers must complete the Online Foundational Module Series. As an alternative to the in-person institutes, we are offering Virtual Foundations Cohorts. 

Pre-AP Foundational Learning

The summer before their first year teaching a Pre-AP course, teachers are required to take part in professional learning offered by the College Board. For academic year 2020-21, all educators are required to complete the Online Foundational Modules Series. Pre-AP educators will also have the option to join free Virtual Foundations Cohorts, which extend learning from the on-demand Online Foundational Module Series. These live, virtual classes provide an opportunity for teachers and leaders to plan and collaborate with Pre-AP National Faculty and peers.

Online Foundational Module Series

The Online Foundational Module Series will be available beginning July 2020 on Pre-AP Classroom, and will be available to all Pre-AP teachers at no charge.  These course-specific modules can be completed in 12− 20 hours and support teachers in planning and preparing for their Pre-AP course.
