What is the Classical Learning Test?

Classic Learning Test (CLT) offers assessments that evaluate English, grammar, and mathematical skills, providing a comprehensive measure of achievement and aptitude. Unlike other tests that change according to educational or cultural trends, CLT exams emphasize foundational critical thinking skills and are accessible to students from a variety of educational backgrounds.

The “classic” in Classic Learning Test refers to the use of classic literature and historical texts for the reading selections on our exams. By engaging students with this meaningful content, CLT assessments offer a more edifying testing experience and reflect a holistic education.

Classic Learning Test is creating a new standard for standardized testing. Their suite of exams – CLT for 11th and 12th graders, CLT10 for 9th and 10th graders, and CLT8 for 7th and 8th graders – is designed to give students a challenging yet fair assessment of their capabilities in a 100% online format.

What Schools Accept the CLT?

Over 200 colleges and universities across the United States have partnered with the CLT by accepting CLT scores or providing thousands of dollars in scholarships tied to CLT scores.
