If you are in New Orleans - you can attend LTF Training due to the great efforts of Advance NOLA!

Our AdvanceNOLA program supports the development of Advanced Placement programs in four public high schools in New Orleans. In the current academic year, we have expanded our college readiness initiatives by implementing pre-AP programs within these high schools.

Our partner schools have expressed interest in entering 9th graders having already been exposed to pre-AP programs. The local middle schools are doing a tremendous job talking to students about college and career readiness, and we would like to augment their initiatives with pre-AP programs on their campuses.

The Cowen Institute, through its Programming area, will offer six teacher scholarships for Laying the Foundation’s pre-AP training for up to 20 public schools with 7th and 8th grades. Ideally, we will train two teachers in each core subject: math, science, and English.

Laying the Foundation’s four-day Pre-AP Summer Institute will be held Monday, June 11th- Thursday, June 14th, 2012 at Tulane University. A link to registration can be found here
