The Advanced Placement® Program (AP) provides opportunities for willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level coursework while still in high school. AP courses are developed by the College Board’s AP Program. Corresponding exams at the end of the year allow students to earn college credit or advanced placement at colleges and universities around the world.
There are 38 AP courses in seven subject areas. Visit AP Central to learn more about the courses offered.

AP Summer Institutes provide the most intensive professional development available for AP educators. Summer institute attendees engage in 30 or more hours of content-rich training designed to strengthen how they teach their AP courses.
Many changes are coming to AP in the 2019-2020 school year, and those changes will be addressed at the AP Summer Institutes. College Board endorsed consultants will guide attendees through resources such as course outlines; content-specific handouts; and student samples, scoring guidelines, and commentary from the most recent AP exams.
Three College Board endorsed Advanced Placement (AP)® Summer Institutes will be provided for summer 2019.
