Thank you!

We have had two alternate schedules over the last couple of weeks and I am so appreciative of everyone's flexibility and patience on those days. As you might imagine, coordination over three campuses can be a challenge but our learners have navigated those days very well and with a great attitude.

Additionally, thank you to those who have donated to our facilitator pantry. You have been incredibly generous and your generosity has been deeply appreciated by all of our facilitators.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

AP Testing Registration

Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. New Tech High @ Coppell desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes that they have taken. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount on tuition.

For the 2022 AP exams, students at New Tech High @ Coppell will be registering online. Online Exam registration will begin on Wed, Sep 8, 2021 at 11:59 PM and end on Fri, Nov 5, 2021 at 11:59 PM. The AP exam registration process is two steps, but both can be completed in one sitting when the student and parent/guardian do this together. Even if you do not plan to take the AP exam, you need to complete both steps to access the College Board’s AP resources. Both steps must be completed in order to have AP exams ordered:

Step 1: Begin the process by registering at Here you will indicate both the AP courses you are taking this year and the exams you wish to take. You will receive your join codes and directions to complete the second required step. Any exam fees will be paid online so be sure to have a debit card or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.
Step 2: Use the join codes provided at the completion of step one to enroll the student's AP courses and exams in the College Board's system.

This year each AP exam costs $100.00. New Tech High @ Coppell desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Viana Martinez-Bayon,, in the New Tech High @ Coppell to learn more.

Here are the important dates for the registration process:

  • Fri, Nov 5, 2021 at 11:59 PM - Registrations and payments after this date will incur a $40 late fee per exam.
  • Fri, Nov 5, 2021 at 11:59 PM - Registration Ends
  • Fri, Nov 12, 2021 will be the partial payment date
  • Fri, Nov 12, 2021 - Registrations that have not been paid for will be cancelled and exams will not be ordered.
  • Mon, Apr 25, 2022 - Last day to cancel an exam and receive a full refund.

Please contact Viana Martinez-Bayon, , if you would like to register for an exam not listed or have any questions.
