AP Summer Institutes provide Advanced Placement course training to middle- and high school educators who teach or are interested in teaching Pre-AP or AP courses. The institutes will cover specific AP subjects as well as best practices for initiating and maintaining successful AP courses and programs. The four-day institutes and the consultants who lead them are endorsed or approved by the College Board. UT-Austin faculty will be guest lecturers in some of the institutes. Some institutes will also include activities using UT-Austin resources, such as the Harry Ransom Center, LBJ Library and Museum, Blanton Museum of Art and the Texas Memorial Museum. Attending an APSI is the best way for educators to get inspired, gain new perspective, meet fellow teachers from all over the state and the country, learn new strategy and best prepare themselves for a successful school year.

Participants who attend in full and complete an AP Summer Institute at UT Austin will receive a certificate stating they have completed 30 contact hours of training in the institute subject. Participants who attend part of the institute will receive a letter stating the hours of attendance, but they will not receive a certificate.

In the summer of 2014, over 980 teachers received training from experienced AP consultants and took advantage of the intellectual and cultural resources available at The University of Texas at Austin.
