TKA Students Pass the History I CLEP
On December 8, 2015, four A.P. U.S. History class students traveled to Walter State Community College to take the History I (1500-1877) CLEP (College Level Examination Program) exam. All four of the students passed the CLEP! Congratulations to Niamh Schumacher, Austin Russell, Zach Rollar and Donny Richmond! “They have worked hard all semester, and this is a great accomplishment. Most (if not all) of them will go to colleges that accept CLEP, so they are already earning their college degree even as 11th graders,” said teacher Mr. Andrew Fultz. “Even if they attend a college that does not accept CLEP, having that on their admission application will benefit them greatly.”
CLEP, created by CollegeBoard, is accepted at over 2,900 colleges and universities nationwide, including Carson-Newman, ETSU, MTSU, Walter State, Maryville College and many other local institutions. CollegeBoard is the same organization that creates the SAT and AP tests, and it is a respected organization internationally.
