Important!  

Summer 2020 will see several changes as the College Board redefines how their Pre-AP program and the corresponding professional development.  Courses formerly listed as “Pre-AP”, (high school and middle school) will now be listed as courses in the Institute for Teaching Excellence.   These newly labeled courses will either be held in the four APSI weeks, or in the stand alone week of June 29 – July 2 and should not be confused with the College Board’s new Pre-AP program.   TCU’s Institute for Teaching Excellence:  Elementary Education will be a two-day institute will be moved to the Fall semester with more information coming.  Each of these three PD categories will have a different registration form.  Please let us help you through these changes and are always happy to answer any questions.

Please note that the College Board is registering our AP participants through their Cvent site, which will require an extra step during the registration process.
