"I look forward to teaching the APSI at Fitchburg State University every July.  I have found the participants to be very enthusiastic, hard-working, and motivated to offer their students the best possible learning experience. Compared to other APSIs it is also very well organized and efficiently run, which makes the experience less stressful for consultants."
Jim Glinski, U.S. History Consultant

"My experience at the AP Summer Institute was great, and I truly believe I wouldn't have been able to teach the AP Art course in a way that gave my students the best advantage without the certification. I learned a lot about the grading process and what the jurors are looking for that I'm not sure I would have been teaching. I am very glad I took the time and the resources I gained helped me with teaching AP and my other classes as well."
Heather Falardeau, past participant
