A better test for homeschool students.

We believe that homeschoolers deserve a better standardized test – one that matches classroom curriculum and assesses both aptitude and ability. That’s why we created the Classic Learning Test (CLT).

The CLT is standardized test for college admissions designed to offer homeschoolers a better alternative to the SAT and ACT. Features of the CLT include an online testing platform, content drawn from great literature, and exclusive scholarship opportunities.

In the CLT, you’ll analyze passages from great works in the liberal arts tradition, including Homer, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, and C.S. Lewis.

Don’t wait a month or more to get your test scores. Thanks to our innovative online testing platform, you’ll get your CLT scores within 24 hours of taking the test.

Compete for exclusive scholarships.
The CLT is accepted by over 150 colleges across the nation and they offer over $100 million in scholarships tied to CLT scores.

Students, Parents, & Teachers love the CLT.
