Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program

Our 2015 Video Reporting Statewide Achievements:

Watch our four-minute video reporting career-boosting gains for educators and students in public high schools around Indiana. You'll also find a helpful summary of the successes emerging from two years of College Board Advanced Placement (R) courses and tests, especially for women and students from underrepresented groups.

 

Our Mission:

We prepare Indiana students for college by engaging them in rigorous math, science, and English coursework.  We support them by delivering high quality professional development to their teachers and we continue to support those teachers through the use of our Content Directors.  We provide greater opportunities for students to engage in their work and we reward them for their success.  The two main goals are:

  • To increase the enrollment of students in math, science, and English Advanced Placement® courses in the schools participating in the project, and

  • To increase the number of qualifying scores (3, 4, or 5) on AP® math, science, and English exams in the schools participating in the project

Our Partners:

The Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program for Indiana (AP-TIP IN) is administered by the University of Notre Dame's Institute for Educational Initiatives. With support from the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI), the US Department of Education, the University of Notre Dame, and the Indiana State Department of Education; our program endeavors to complete AP-TIP IN's Mission of improving college and career readiness for students throughout Indiana.  To learn more about how community partners can have an impact on the State's economic future, please contact Karen Morris, Director of AP-TIP IN.
