Texas A&M University-Texarkana will once again host College Board endorsed Advanced Placement Summer Institutes July 9-12 and July 23-26. Summer Institutes prepare high school teachers with the necessary credentials to teach Advanced Placement (AP) classes.
The July 9-12 sessions include Art History, US History, World History, and Government. The July 23-26 sessions include Calculus AB/BC, Computer Science A, and English Language and Literature. AP training sessions are led by College Board consultants.
