*Teacher Status determines the Registration Fee:

  • MIE AP Core Program Teachers: there are no registration fees for Core Program teachers who have attended fewer than two AP Summer Institutes since entering the Mass Insight Education (MIE) Program, and will be teaching at least one AP math, science, or English course during school year 2020-21. For these eligible MIE teachers, there is no cost to attend for an AP course.
  • MIE Sustaining Partnership Program (SPP) Teachers: please refer to the Registration Fees chart on the registration website for cost to attend. Teachers from a SPP school may have their attendance funded through a school/district partnership with MIE and should confirm with school administrators before registering. A discount may apply depending on the school/district partnership with MIE.
  • Non-MIE/Other Teachers: please refer to the Registration Fees chart on the registration website for cost to attend. These are teachers from schools not participating nor affiliated with MIE programs.

Your workshops – including the Summer Institute – were definitely the highlight for my teaching and learning experiences in Boston Public Schools.

Mass Insight has been the best professional development that the city offers. The value that they lend to my pedagogy and children's education is imperative.
