Yesterday, June 4, I took our just-turned 13-year-old to Shenandoah University to take a College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test for U.S. History I. I am thrilled to share with you all that Gavin passed the test and now has three college credit hours! Congratulations to Gavin who worked and studied very hard for the test!
The CLEP tests are administered by the College Board, the same organization that administers the college SATs and PSATs. CLEP scores are excepted for college credit in thousands of colleges and universities in the United States.
Gavin is very interested in history, and regularly studies about great military battles. Studying for this test required delving far more into the details of events in this country from colonization through reconstruction.
Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Ed and Charlotte (RIP) Mauer who provided the funds for Gavin to take the test, as well as providing encouragement.
