Can I bring my family/partner with me to CORE?
No, we can only accommodate participants. Have your family join you at the end
of the institute for a vacation at that time.
What kinds of things can I do for my 20 hour commitment?
You can teach your colleagues how to create a web page; converse with groups
school on new techniques you are incorporating into your classrooms, organize hands-on in-service workshops, develop standards-based curricula, and so on. You will work with your institute colleagues to plan these activities.
Do I have to apply for the CORE Institute as part of a team?
We encourage teams, but accept individual applications.
Are teachers outside the United States eligible to apply?
only accept applications from candidates who teach in US schools, US territories, or Department of Defense Schools.

I would like a private dorm room because of my sleeping habits. May I have one?
In Princeton and Lawrenceville, we try to cooperate if the
case warrants but private rooms may not be air-conditioned. Everyone sleeps in dormitories in Costa Rica.
I missed applying for graduate credit the year I attended the CORE institute. May I apply now?
The policy has been to apply for
graduate credit at the end of the institute, but you may write to Geri Marchioni
