AP for All Summer Institute

More than 450 AP colleagues from Texas to Wyoming and Germany to Costa Rica attended the nation’s only College Board-certified Advanced Placement for All Summer Institute (APSI), July 11-15, 2016 at Metropolitan State University of Denver.

College success begins in high school with an early introduction to the rigorous coursework students encounter in college. APSI helps teachers learn tools, strategies, and resources to help all AP students succeed, including those typically underrepresented in AP courses — such as females, and students of poverty and color.

“Students who have an advantage of AP classes are more likely to go to college and graduate from college,” said CEI’s Colorado Legacy Schools (CLS) Director Greg Hessee. “Our CLS program works to dramatically increase the number and diversity of high school students succeeding in AP math, science, and English courses — and encouraging them to pursue majors and careers in the rapidly-growing STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math.)”

AP for All Summer Institute

Really, all kids, girls and boys from all socio-economic levels, we want all kids to know that they can be successful in rigorous curriculum. If you don’t see yourself in that career or if you don’t even know that career exists, then you’re not going to reach for it.”
Tara Haller, AP computer science teacher, Durango High School
The AP for All Summer Institute was the best professional development I’ve had in my seven years of teaching. It was the first experience that truly centered on serving all students, and gave me tons of strategies to take into my classroom this year.
