College Board Press Release

Saint Mary's Hall is pleased to announce that it will be taking part in the Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institute (APSI), in partnership with the College Board.

Held nationwide at over 160 partner colleges and universities, AP Summer Institutes offer the most thorough professional learning available for AP educators. Attendees engage in over 30 hours of content-rich training designed to strengthen how they teach their AP courses.

“We are proud be a host site for the AP Summer Institute because it arms AP educators with the latest tools and strategies to take back to their learning communities,” said Carol Brown. “The global institutional network is also a remarkable resource for developing relationships and best practices.”

“For over 30 years, the AP Summer Institute has provided dedicated AP teachers with intense training and educational collaboration,” said Trevor Packer, Head of the AP Program. “APSI helps to ensure that students will receive the challenging instruction they need to prepare for college success.”

Research shows that AP students are better prepared for college. They are more likely to enroll in college, stay in college, do well in their classes, and graduate on time in four years. Following challenging coursework, success on AP Exams helps students save money on college tuition and potentially graduate with less student debt over the course of their education.
