The Rice University Academies provide experienced AP® teachers the opportunity to delve deeply into specific course content with higher education faculty and to connect to their discipline’s current work. This unique professional development model provides teachers the depth of content needed to improve their instruction and increase student achievement. Facilitated by master teachers, each course is typically composed of a variety of presentations by distinguished faculty from Rice and other institutions of higher education.
Courses will be held Tuesday-Friday, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on the Rice University campus. Courses and master teachers are subject to change. Only enrolled adults are allowed to participate in the program. We cannot accommodate supervised or unsupervised children.
