About the Team

AP is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion and hard work of students and educators from secondary schools and higher education. With almost 40 courses in a wide variety of subject areas, AP provides willing and academically prepared high school students with the opportunity to study and learn at the college level. The AP program is rapidly expanding its development of instructional and assessment products with the launch of new AP courses and revision of current AP courses. To support the high-quality production of teacher- and student-facing materials for the STEM AP courses, the AP Program is looking to fill the role of Senior Director, AP Course Product Manager.
