June 26, 2017 — July 28, 2017

Thank you for visiting the Taft Educational Center (TEC). We all know it takes a special person to be a teacher. And it takes a very special teacher to give up a week of summer vacation to attend a professional development workshop.

We have been offering workshops since 1976 and are the oldest and largest summer institute in New England. Your summer experience with us will allow you to meet other colleagues and exchange ideas and information. Our intensive workshops in both AP™ and non-AP™ disciplines will help familiarize you with skills and content to better prepare you for your students. Your time is very valuable, and we strive to give you a week of professional development that will enhance your teaching immediately.

With some of the best instructors in the nation and a gorgeous campus, the Taft Educational Center will provide you with up-to-date resources and information about your discipline in a relaxed setting. After a full day of studies, unwind by using our tennis courts, weight room, running trails, and golf course among other attractions.

Browse through our site to investigate our offerings. With more than 70 workshops spread across 5 weeks, we are sure you can find something that will fit both your schedule and your interests.
Tuition information, along with workshop and registration information are available using the gray tabs above the blue line.

If you have any questions, we’ll be happy to answer them at 860-945-7837.

Thanks for stopping by.
