Career and Technical Education (CTE) Courses

  • CTE Logo Coppell High School offers learners the opportunity to participate in one of three small learning communities referred to as “The Academies.”  Learners with a passion for a particular career or who would like the experience of taking a deep dive into an area of study may choose to enroll in either the Emerging Media and Communications Academy (EMAC), the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Academy (STEM), or the Public Services Academy (PSA).  The focus of the academy becomes the lens through which the majority the curriculum is explored.  Each academy has specific requirements.  Learners are given a great deal of voice and choice in how they demonstrate their understanding of the content.  In each academy, learners are expected to make connections and apply their learning in “real-world” situations facing practitioners in that field.

New Tech High @ Coppell

  • NTH@C Logo New Tech High @ Coppell is the high school of choice in CISD.  NTH@C is a campus devoted to Project/Problem Based Learning (PBL) as its sole instructional methodology. NTH@C learners must meet additional graduation requirements including a minimum of 12 hours of dual credit, a job shadowing and internship experience, 10 hours of community service a year, and a Capstone Project and Presentation.  While there are no GT courses offered at NTH@C, all course work is weighted at the Honors or AP level due to the rigorous instruction in a PBL environment.

Dual Credit And Concurrent Enrollment

  • Dual Credit Through a partnership with Dallas County Community Colleges and Texas Woman’s University (New Tech only), Coppell ISD offers gifted learners the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school through a dual credit enrollment program.  Learners may select from an approved list of dual credit courses. Learners are not required to pay tuition or fees for Dual Credit courses through our partnership with Dallas County Community Colleges, but they are responsible for purchasing required textbooks and/or supplies.  Learners enrolling in Dual Credit courses through our partnership with Texas Woman’s University are subject to minimal tuition and fees as well as being responsible for purchasing required textbooks and/or supplies. Tuition and fees always apply for concurrent enrollment courses through either partner.
