Loyola University Chicago Advanced Placement Capstone Summer Institute

Loyola University Chicago invites you to attend our 1st annual Advanced Placement Capstone Summer Institute during the week of July 8-12, 2019.

Teachers from schools approved by the College Board to offer AP Capstone™ courses, AP Seminar and AP Research, may attend this training.  First year teachers of AP Capstone courses are required to complete professional development before teaching either course.

The AP Capstone™ professional development summer workshop trains instructors to teach college level thinking and research skills while exploring academic and real world questions, problems and issues from different disciplines and multiple perspectives.

Special focus is given to facilitate student learning in collaborative settings, while motivating students to think critically and innovatively about research questions.

AP Seminar and AP Research training is available for teachers and administrators from approved AP Capstone schools only. If you have questions about your school's eligibility, please contact apcapstone@info.collegeboard.org




Loyola University's 2019 AP Capstone is a new diploma program based on AP Seminar and AP Research which will be conducted July 8-12.

Training for AP Seminar and AP Research is mandatory, resulting in College Board partnerships with select AP Summer Institutes (APSI) to ensure sufficient availability.

Both AP Capstone core courses will take place at our Lake Shore Campus in Chicago, Illinois.

Both training courses will be led by consultants selected by the College Board. Loyola's AP Capstone PD is officially endorsed by the Midwest Regional Office of the College Board and is run by Loyola's Center for Science and Math Education.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance following the successful completion of their training course (minimum 30 contact hours). In addition, participants will have two options available for professional development credit:

30-32 Continuing Professional Development Units (CPDU): Loyola is an approved Professional Development Provider for the Illinois State Board of Education


3 graduate credit hours in the department conducting the training course. Registration for this graduate credit and payment of the $822 additional tuition (70% discount from Loyola's customary tuition) will be done on-site during the week of the AP Capstone. Each training session consultant will determine additional work required for this option.


On-campus housing is available for $95.05 per night. If you would like to register for housing, please fill out this form before May 20, 2019. Overnight parking is included with on-campus housing. ***Please complete the AP Capstone course registration prior to registering for on-campus housing.***
