A College Entrance Exam That Digs Deeper

The SAT® and ACT® are designed to reflect public school curricula, specifically the Common Core State Standards framework. The CLT is different.

Instead of evaluating how much students have crammed for the test, CLT considers students’ intellectual capacity and aptitude, and puts them in front of meaningful pieces of literature that have stood the test of time.

See why so many students are signing up to take the CLT instead of other college entrance exams.
