PLEx Courses Offered

Started in January 2018:
Modern States & CLEP
Collierville Schools has partnered with Modern States, a non-profit that offers courses developed and taught by college professors that prepare students for the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).  Successfully passing a CLEP exam earns students college credit at over 2,900 colleges.  As part of the partnership, Modern States is paying the $85 test fee, as well as the $25 scheduling fee for students in Collierville Schools who enroll online, complete the course, and take the CLEP exam (for a limited time).  Please note that these courses do not count for high school credit.  A list of Modern States courses that align with CHS courses can be found here. Register with Modern States to get started.
