Preparing Advanced Placement Students &
Improving AP Instruction

UCLA Center X – AP Readiness for 2021-2022

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, UCLA Center X’s AP Readiness Program will begin the school year as a Virtual Program for 2021-22. AP Readiness may return to the UCLA campus as an in-person program based on the Health & Safety Rules and Regulations established by the University, Los Angeles County Health and in collaboration with our partner school districts.

Equity & Access to high-level, rigorous instruction in Advanced Placement is the mission of AP Readiness. The AP Readiness Program is designed with two interconnected goals in mind. The program aims to improve the teaching abilities of AP instructors while simultaneously giving students the skills they will need to be successful in college level classes. AP Readiness allows students to work with master instructors, who prepare them for the rigorous curriculum that they will face in AP courses. Concurrently, their AP teachers observe and learn from the master instructors, gathering a framework for how to successfully conduct an AP course. This unique program allows for students and teachers to learn together. Both teachers and students also become an essential part of a network of AP support and excellence.
