CLT Student Awards

National Award Winners Based on CLT10 Scores

Each year, Classic Learning Test recognizes top performers on the CLT10, our college preparatory exam and alternative to the PSAT. Distinguished Scholars are those who earned the top score at their respective school, Regional Scholars landed in the top 5% of their respective region, and National Award recipients are the top 50 high school sophomores across the United States. 

National Award recipients are awarded a $2,500 scholarship to help cover the cost of tuition and room and board at any CLT Partner College.
