Silver State AP* Summer Institute

Welcome to Silver State AP* Summer Institute.

Registration will re-open in 2018!

We would be honored if you would join us June 26-29, 2017 in Las Vegas for our 12th summer institute.

The 2017 institute will be held at Liberty High School in Henderson, Nevada, a modern, air-conditioned campus only minutes from McCarran International Airport and the fabulous Las Vegas Strip.

SSAPSI is one of the premier AP* Summer Institutes in the nation. Here's what people are saying about us:

  • Phenomenal presenters! I learned more the past 4 days than I have in all of my years of teaching when it comes to professional development.
  • This was the best AP* conference I've been to. Our instructor added to my understanding of my new course without causing panic about how much to do.
  • I have done many AP* seminars—nationally and internationally—and you are the best.
  • I am counting the days until I can come back.
  • Best AP* presenter I’ve ever had in 40 years. I will use everything!
  • The on-site event staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, and the overall event was very organized—best I’ve been to.

Sources of funds for AP* Summer Institutes:

AP* Fellows

The College Board* AP* Fellows program is an annual competitive grant program that provides scholarships for secondary school teachers planning to teach AP* courses in schools that serve minority and/or low income students who have been traditionally under represented in AP* courses. The scholarships assist teachers with the cost of attending an AP* Summer Institute. more info
