Equal emphasis is placed upon pedagogical and subject content. The courses are designed to accommodate beginning and experienced AP teachers. Each course will review the latest changes and shifts in emphasis in the AP syllabus.

The courses offered in AP 2017 may be taken for 3 graduate credits or audited.
To earn 3 graduate credits students must submit additional assignments as directed by the instructor.  Students taking the class for credit will also receive 90 ACT 48 hours. All AP 2017 participants will have access to the latest technologies and facilities in each discipline. AP 2017 is designed to be informative, helpful, encouraging, and fun. We hope you can join us!
