The folks at Classic Learning Test design their standardized tests with your homeschool/private school students in mind. The tests are not aligned with common core objectives or standards; rather, they seek to measure the true nature of classical and liberal arts education. The test results should better reflect what your students are learning in the classroom and at home. In their reading, grammar and writing, and math sections, they emphasize literature, history, philosophy, religion, reasoning, and logic.

The 3rd-12th grade CLT exams are great ways for parents, private schools, and colleges to assess students’ academic formation. If a student takes a CLT exam, their educators can more accurately measure student abilities and growth over the years. It’s also a helpful tool for students to better understand their areas of strength and weakness.
