Preparing Advanced Placement Students &
Improving AP Instruction

UCLA Center X – Virtual AP Readiness for 2020-21

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, UCLA Center X’s AP Readiness Program will be conducted as a Virtual Program for 2020-21. 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.


Registration is now open for both students and educators.

The 1st Event for both STEM & HUMANITIES Programs will be conducted on September 12, 2020.
