The AP Readiness Program uses an academy model; mentor Advanced Placement instructors work with pre-advanced placement and advanced placement teachers to teach them how to help their students with the skills necessary to be successful in college level classes while they are instructing their students. AP teachers learn from each other while observing and supporting the master teachers.
Registration for 2019-2020 is now open on the Registration Tab at the top of the site.
The AP Readiness Program is designed to provide training and support for teachers in Advanced Placement instruction while preparing students for AP courses. Working with master instructors and teachers, students will build a strong conceptual foundation that will allow them to excel in Advanced Placement courses.
These special sessions on specific AP courses are held on the UCLA campus on Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM (Educators meet together without students from 1pm to 2pm). The district or schools provide transportation to UCLA.
CLASSES ARE OFFERED IN:
- Computer Science Principles

The AP Readiness Program is not designed to take the place of quality Advanced Placement instruction in the school, but to supplement and enhance what is already being taught.
The goal of the AP Readiness Program is to increase the opportunities for all students to have access to a rigorous curriculum. The AP Readiness Program includes not only AP teachers and their students but also potential AP teachers and their students.
