What We Cover

Whether you are a new or experienced AP educator, APSI will help you take your teaching to the next level. Led by College Board-endorsed instructors, our workshops can help you:

  • make equitable access a guiding principle in your school’s AP Program;
  • prepare your students for success in college-level courses;
  • develop instructional approaches that align with the goals of AP;
  • identify the tasks and materials for which students might need more preparation;
  • draft a syllabus that meets the curricular requirements for the course; and
  • successfully coordinate your schools’ AP Exam administration.

Professional Development

On behalf of the NM Public Education Department, we invite New Mexico teachers who seek professional development in the area of Advanced Placement education to attend the New Mexico APSI. Our in-state teachers enjoy:

  • no registration fees; and 
  • paid accommodations.

To our out-of-state guests, we welcome you to New Mexico! We hope you’ll make us your top choice as you continue your professional development.
