Invitation Letter

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Philadelphia Area Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools (PhiTOPSS), I invite you and your AP Psychology students to participate in PhiTOPSS’s fourth annual AP Psychology Exam Regional Review to be held on Saturday, May 4th at Cheltenham High School in Wyncote, PA from 9 AM to 4:40 PM. Teachers and their students from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland have come to review themes and concepts that are tested on the AP Psychology Exam. The review begins with a practice exam that has been written specifically for this review. Students are provided their results and a summary of themes in which they scored best and ones that they may need to review.

The review sessions, which are based on major units of the AP Psych curriculum, are conducted in a convention format. Students attend the sessions that they would like to review the most. Sessions are facilitated by psychology teachers who volunteer their services and resources. Also included are sessions for the entire group, in which testing strategies, approaches to exam, and major themes are discussed. Many students have reported being better prepared for the AP Exam as a result of their attendance.

The cost to attend is $1 per student for PhiTOPSS member schools (a school can join PhiTOPSS at the review in for $5). Lunch is also sold at a price that is near cost (so as to not to make a profit). You can register your school here.

This event cannot happen without volunteers! Please consider offering a session or helping run the operations of the event (e.g., distributing lunch, etc.). Those who offer review sessions will be provided with free lunch and free attendance for up to ten of their students. If you would like to volunteer, you can register here.

The full itinerary can be found using the attached document or by clicking here. Please know that the PhiTOPSS website ( is functional but, due to a glitch, cannot be updated with this information until later on this weekend.

We hope that you will consider attending this review with your students. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
