This AP Summer Institute is a College Board endorsed site and brings the nation's best consultants to work with AP teachers.
[Note: South Carolina teachers --- good news for you: SC requires 45 hours of professional
development and the Walton APSI has an agreement with the SC DOE to help you get the
required hours. E-mail us for details!]
This endorsement means every consultant working with you has been trained by the College Board to deliver the best professional development summer institutes. We have invited consultants who are also readers at the AP Exam Readings, and our preference is to have consultants who also teach the course at the high school level. We believe in offering you, the AP teacher, the very best AP consultants from across the country. The Walton APSI consultants have requested the latest and best samples from publishers so that you will have access to a variety of resources to teach your course.

AP Equity and Access Policy
The College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. We encourage the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underserved. Schools should make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population. The College Board also believes that all students should have access to academically challenging course work before they enroll in AP classes, which can prepare them for AP success. It is only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access that true equity and excellence can be achieved.
