17 content areas
Offered by the Graduate Division of La Salle University in collaboration with the Middle States Regional Office of the College Board.
While professional development is not required to prepare for 2019-20 AP course updates and new classroom resources, the College Board encourages AP teachers to take advantage of the professional development offered by the AP. Based on survey data, teachers across the country have found AP professional development to be extremely valuable.
Teachers who do attend an AP Summer Institute in 2019 should be able to:
- Understand the Course
- The course framework defines the scope of the course and specifies what students must know and do to be successful on the AP Exam.
- Plan the Course
- Sequencing, pacing, and scaffolding are essential for building students’ understanding and their ability to transfer and apply knowledge and skills.
- Teach the Course
- Effective instructional strategies help students to develop a mastery of course content and skills over time.
- Assess Student Progress and Understanding
- Learning requires time, practice, and regular feedback.

You must choose whether you will take the course for audit when you register for the course.
Credit vs. Audit
PLEASE NOTE: La Salle University is a for-credit Act 48 Provider. Act 48 credits will only be submitted for participants taking a course for credit. Please check with your home district/school regarding Act 48 credits if you audit a course.
If a course is taken for credit, you will be required to complete an assignment due after the institute has ended. The course instructors will also give directions and guidelines in regards to the project during the week of the program. The instructor of the course will provide you with a due date. A letter grade (i.e. “A,” “B,” “C,” etc.) will be assigned once the project is completed and submitted. After the instructor receives your project and submits your grade, ACT 48 credits will be applied.
If you take a course for audit, you are not required to complete an additional assignment for the course. In this instance, a grade of “X” will be recorded on your transcript to verify that you have attended and completed the class.
Catholic School Teacher Discount
Teachers who are currently employed as full-time teachers in Catholic schools within the dioceses of Philadelphia, Pa., Allentown, Pa., Trenton, N.J., Camden, N.J., and Wilmington, Del., will be granted a 30 percent tuition discount. If you are eligible for this discount, you must submit a letter from your principal indicating that you will be teaching in your present school during the 2018-2019 academic year.
Registration and Payment of Fees
Registration for courses and housing, if desired, must be made in advance. You may register online by completing the La Salle University Graduate AP Program Application and choosing your course at the end of the application.
Because registration for all courses must be limited, students will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. All courses will run concurrently; consequently, you may register for only one course.
By using the online Graduate Program Application, you will be billed once your registration has been processed. Billing for summer session courses begins in May.
