(Aug. 15, 2014) -- The annual UTSA Advanced Placement Summer Institute (APSI) welcomed an all-time high of 450 teachers, both American and international, to the Main Campus last week.

Conducted by the Office of Extended Education, the fifth APSI included 19 workshops in science, math, and humanities, as well as field trips and informational sessions on the Top Scholars program and the Academy for Teacher Excellence.

AP teachers participate in this four-day program to complete 30 contact hours with the guidance of qualified College Board consultants holding doctorates or decades of experience in their subject field.

"The UTSA APSI is a great resource to prepare middle school and high school teachers to teach college-bound students," said Marty Gutierrez Saul, extended education coordinator. "Our program has grown to meet an increasing demand for AP institute workshops, thereby bringing a more diverse group of teachers to UTSA each year."

Frank Salazar, director of extended education, said, "The success of APSI at UTSA stems from great collaboration, coordination and concord among Extended Education personnel."
