AP Summer Institute Courses
The AP® Summer Institute at Rice University offers challenging AP and Pre-AP professional development courses and Academies that address advanced topics in AP. The institute is administered by the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies and endorsed by the Southwest Region of the College Board.
Courses are led by experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated College Board-endorsed lead consultants who have a broad range of knowledge and proven ability presenting to their peers. Faculty for 2017 include AP test development committee members, AP exam readers, winners of special recognition awards from the College Board, and winners of regional and national teaching awards.

*AP Mentoring Bundle
Courses marked with an asterisks above are eligible for the AP Mentor Bundle. Rice University and the College Board are offering AP Computer Science Principles, AP English Literature, and AP U.S. History teachers the opportunity to attend an AP Summer Institute and receive AP Mentoring throughout the school year.
AP Mentoring is an online teacher-to-teacher support program that connects AP teachers who want to enhance their teaching skills with expert AP teachers who have significant instructional experience and deep content knowledge. Groups of up to four mentees meet with mentors via video chat each month during the school year. For more information about AP Mentoring, visit http://www.collegeboard.org/apmentoring.
Teachers register once for both programs and pay a discounted price; both programs would normally cost $1,444 per teacher, but through this bundling offer, teachers pay $1,195 (through July 3) or $1,245 (after July 3).
The combined support of an APSI and AP Mentoring offers teachers a more comprehensive professional development option. They receive an immersion in their subject through the APSI and then continuous support during the school year through AP Mentoring, reinforcing what they learned over the summer.
