What We Do

Learn Apply Enhance

The Advanced Placement Summer Institute® (APSI) is administered by UTSA Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE) and endorsed by the Southwestern Region of the College Board. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of instruction and prepare educators to guide students toward a successful college experience! We work diligently to bring together AP College Board-certified consultants and teachers from around the world to attend the APSI.

UTSA PaCE is now in its thirteenth year conducting the AP Summer Institute. In those years, we have welcomed thousands of educators who are passionate about the profession. We are proud to serve as a learning destination for the educational leaders of our youth.

Last year, the UTSA APSI held twenty-five virtual workshops and welcomed over 300 educators during the two summer sessions. In 2023, UTSA is excited to host both an in-person and virtual institute.
