Why the CLT?

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) is the new standard for college entrance exams. 95% of CLT educators in a survey state that they would recommend the CLT for students. Additionally, students have stated that the CLT is a positive experience when compared to the SAT and ACT.

"Students who study for the Classic Learning Test will enter college with the right formation, and their teachers will notice it immediately. I am certain that if, ten years from now, we could collect data on the performance of CLT students after one year of college, we would find a stark demonstration of superior achievement."
- Dr. Mark Bauerlein, Professor of English at Emory University and renowned author
