Strong Pre-AP courses provide students the critical foundation of skills necessary for success in secondary advanced academics and help to build a pipeline of “AP ready” students in your schools. The Rice University Pre-AP Summer Workshops emphasize skills and strategies to increase rigor in the Pre-AP classroom in order to prepare students for future AP success. Content specific workshops are being offered for English, math, science and social studies. 

Workshops will be Tuesday-Friday, 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on the Rice University campus. Only enrolled adults are allowed to participate in the workshops. The workshops cannot accommodate supervised or unsupervised children.

Acknowledgment of Enrollment: Once you register for a course through our online registration system, you will be enrolled in the course. An enrollment acknowledgement will immediately be sent to the email address on your account showing payment confirmation or including instructions for submitting payment via check. In some cases, a course may be full, and you will have the option of getting on a waiting list. A waiting list is automatically created for a course once it has filled to capacity. If a spot should become available in that filled course, and you are next on the waiting list, you will receive an email to the email address on file with instructions for completing registration for that specific course.
