Comparing the Top College Entrance Exams

How does the CLT compare to the SAT®, ACT®, and PSAT®?

Looking to take a college entrance or preparatory exam? The CLT provides a more rigorous and comprehensive measure of academic formation, accomplishment, and potential.

Seeking to provide a meaningful testing experience that enriches the mind, CLT puts students in front of the texts that have shaped history and culture. Our Author Bank–from which we draw the passages on our exam–includes influential writers and thinkers such as C.S. Lewis, Aristotle, Flannery O’Connor, Ovid, Francis Bacon, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and so many more.
