Colleges all across North America accept the CLT, tying more than $100 million in scholarships to scores. Students may share their CLT scores for free with an unlimited number of colleges through their secure student account.
“Freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.”
John Paul II
“The CLT was fun to take, because it was engaging. The exam wasn’t just solving pointless puzzles; it was really about thinking.”
“The CLT 8 was a great experience. My son especially appreciated that the sources for the reading texts were similar to his school texts and that they represented a variety of worldviews. Proctoring the exam at home was simple!”
