a family-owned and operated, not an institutional program. For 21 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 a family of professionals 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!

Announcement: We are now open and accepting registrations. AP Seminars will present two online and one face-to-face institute during the last two weeks of July. We hope to see many of you-in person(yes!)-at Palo Alto High School or online.
