Greetings from the NTPA Class of 2020 Board!
As our seniors look ahead to next year and beyond, please note these upcoming events and dates.
Registration for AP Exams: New Process and November 15 Deadline
College Board announced significant changes to the AP Exam registration process for high schools that administer AP Exams, including the requirement to register directly through the College Board site. That means New Trier can NO LONGER register students. To avoid late fees, students must be registered on the College Board website by November 15 and payment must be made on Revtrak. Click
for important information about the registration process and timeline.
