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!
