Special offer from Scholé Academy: CLT8 and CLT10

Scholé Academy and the Classic Learning Test have partnered to bring you a special discounted rate on the CLT8 test! All current 7th–10th grade Scholé Academy or St. Raphael School students are eligible! Learn more below.

What’s different about the CLT8 and the CLT10?

The folks at the 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. They emphasize literature, history, philosophy, and religion, but also have sections focusing on math, reasoning, and logic.

The CLT8 and CLT10 are both great ways for parents, private schools, and colleges to assess students’ academic formation and potential. If a student takes the CLT8 and the CLT10, other schools and colleges can more accurately measure student growth over the years. It’s also a helpful tool for students to better understand their areas of strength and weakness.

The CLT10 is a free test for all eligible students. CLT10 test-takers can send their scores to colleges and make great connections early on in the scouting process. And the CLT10 comes with a $2,500 scholarship opportunity!

The CLT8 is a standardized test offered by the Classic Learning Test. It measures:

  1. Verbal reasoning
  2. Grammar/Writing
  3. Quantitative reasoning

The CLT8 is an end-of-grade assessment tool designed for 8th grade students as they prepare for high school. It is designed as an aid for school administrators, teachers, and parents as they help students achieve grade-level academic benchmarks.

While it is designed for 8th grade students, it can also be offered to 7th graders as an assessment tool to monitor student progress between 7th and 8th grade.


The CLT10 is the official preparatory exam for the Classic Learning Test. It is primarily offered to 9th and 10th grade students. The CLT10 is an alternative to the PSAT. In terms of academic rigor, it is scaled back from the regular CLT (i.e., no trigonometry, few level-5 questions).

In addition, the CLT10 is free for all students. Although it is free, students who score within the top 1% are still eligible for $2,500 in scholarship money through CLT’s partnership with the National Association of Scholars. Scholarships are only available to 10th-grade students at this time.
