Several students from Mr. Fultz’s Advanced Placement United States History class decided to take the U.S. History I CLEP exam. CLEP stands for College Level Examination Program, and it is designed by the same organization, College Board, that creates the A.P. Exams and the SAT. Jordan Click, Bailee Wayland, Katie Dunn, Scarlett Spaulding, and Danielle Everett passed the U.S. History I CLEP, with a few of them receiving very high marks. The exam covers the beginnings of American life, focusing on the English colonies to the end of Reconstruction in 1877. Therefore, these students earned three college credits for that course and are well on their way to succeeding in college, even before exiting high school. CLEP is accepted at more than 2,900 colleges across the country. Local schools include Johnson University, Walter State, Carson-Newman, ETSU, MTSU, Maryville College, Pellissippi, and the University of Tennessee.
Mr. Fultz is very proud of these students. More students from his class will take the U.S. History II CLEP in May, which covers 1877 to the present time, and others will take the A.P. Exam.
