About Our APSI

For almost a decade, the CIU 10 has held Advanced Placement® (AP) Summer Institutes at Bellefonte Area High School in Historic Bellefonte, PA; offering AP courses to new and experienced teaching professionals from around the country.

  • Teach the Course
    • Effective instructional strategies help students to develop a mastery of course content and skills over time.
