Welcome

June 24, 2019 — August 2, 2019

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 6 weeks, we are sure you can find something that will fit both your schedule and your interests.

Registration opens 1/7/19

The Taft Educational Center will start accepting registrations on January 7, 2019.

The Advanced Placement registration is different this summer

The College Board has required all Advanced Placement registrations go through their CVENT registration process. When you choose a workshop session, you will be directed to the Collage Board site to complete the registration.

You must have a College Board registration number. If you are not registered with the College Board or do not know your number, you will be prompted to another menu for enrollment.

The registration process will be different but all workshop sessions are held at the Taft School, with the same attention to details.

All payments will have to be mailed to our office before you will be placed in a workshop session.

Non-AP Workshop sessions - July 29 - August 2, 2019

We are offering a sixth week of workshops for the non-AP teachers. This is an added week that will have technology, math, languages and college counseling as part of the offerings.

These workshop sessions are perfect for any grade level teacher and will enhance your approach and knowledge of your subject.

Please call if you have any questions about these workshops.
