June 19 - 22

Join us at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, FL for the 2017 Advanced Placement* Summer Institute!  Gulf Coast State College offers the essentials for a successful Advanced Placement* Institute for new and experienced teachers.

Just as important as the many fine attributes of the AP* program is the transformation that takes place in teachers who embrace the AP* perspective.

Experience - outstanding faculty consultants

Excellence - affiliation with a major state college

Environment - a beautiful campus along the bay that is the ideal setting for a quiet and calming escape
