Advanced Placement Summer Institutes

Molloy College, through the Divisions of Education and Continuing Education and Professional Development, offers summer institutes for teachers of Advanced Placement (A.P.) high school courses. Institutes are taught by experienced teachers of A.P. and are endorsed by the College Board.

The institutes are designed to prepare teachers for the College Board's Advanced Placement Curriculum. Participants will gain experience with the concepts and goals of the A.P. courses and their corresponding examinations. The Institutes will address curriculum, pedagogy and technology as supported by national standards and the College Board.

Each workshop will be led by College Board-certified A.P. consultants and will provide participants with the experiences necessary to successfully teach an advanced placement course in their discipline.

All the Institutes are usually offered on a one-week, Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (except the week of July 2) schedule at either our Rockville Centre Campus located in Nassau County, Long Island or at our Suffolk Center on Route 110, on the grounds of Republic Airport located at 7180 Grumman Lane, in East Farmingdale, New York, 11735.

Please note that this year all registrations, either for graduate credit or for non-credit must be done online.

Each institute is limited to 30 participants, with the exception of our institutes where a lab is involved. In those instances the enrollment is limited to 12-16 participants.

Qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come/first-served basis. The registration deadline is three weeks prior to the start date of each institute. Late registration may be possible if space and materials are still available.

You tuition includes: complimentary continental breakfast and lunch each day, approved College Board materials, complimentary textbooks (depending upon the institute) and a binder of handouts from the instructor.

Graduate Credit Option
The Summer Institutes can be taken for 3 graduate credits and are approved as such by the New York State Department of Education. However, registering for graduate credit is a two-step process. You must first register for the course by clicking the course title(s) in the above schedule of the course(s) that you wish to register for. You may do this now to avoid being closed-out of the course. The graduate registration option will be available on or around March 2, 2018. You will be contacted via email regarding the additional graduate credit registration process.

The institutes meet for 45 contact hours, of which 30 hours consist of classroom instruction and 15 hours consist of outside work, including a course project which is due within two weeks of the institute end date. This is the same breakdown of hours for all of our graduate courses that are offered during the fall and spring semesters on a 14-week schedule, the only difference is that the summer institutes are offered on a more intense schedule.

The institutes are all listed with the course code, EDU 524, which is part of our graduate course offerings in the Division of Education and can be used as an elective towards our Master of Science degree in Education. The general course description can be found on our website at:

Since this is a special topics course, the specific course descriptions differ depending upon the topic. The description of the EDU 524 courses offered as part of our Summer Institutes can be found by clicking the course title above.
