a family-owned and operated, not an institutional program. For 19 years, veteran high school educators, Duane and Normajean Hinders have been bringing their professional and personal touch to this unique APSI, growing us from just a few subjects to twenty-four. Duane devoted many years as an AP reader and presenter in both Calculus and Statistics, helping to pioneer the addition of AP Statistics.

Years of treating our AP Seminars team like family has inspired loyalty from staff and presenters alike. We eagerly anticipate working together each summer, and it shows!  Participating teachers enjoy the results of a highly professional team who really like each other.

Come and join us this summer!

===================================information below this box is for 2020 - This  website will be updated for 2021 by about December 1, 2020.  ============================================

In 2021, AP Seminars will offer Advanced Placement Summer Institutes (APSI) in twenty-four different subjects (see 2020 list below). There will be a Computer Science Principles workshop  the week of July 19th and the other twenty-three subjects will be offered the week of July 26. Our goal at this point is to be able to offer an on-site workshop, but Covid-19 realities may affect that plan. If we cannot offer an on-site APSI, we will offer all subjects online as we did in 2020. We hope to have a decision in place  by the end of 2020 or early in 2021. The link below  indicates how these two althernatives might play out. Details (including exact dates and fees) are subject to change.
