Strengthen your education with
assessments that reflect classical,
homeschool cu

The assessments you use should support your educational choice.

You chose a classical, homeschool education for a reason. But when it comes to assessing your student's progress, finding a like-minded option can be frustrating.

While other standardized tests embrace Common Core curriculum and feature dry, biased content, Classic Learning Test's (CLT) assessments for Grades 3-12 utilize timeless material and assess foundational skills, providing homeschool parents with a meaningful metric of their students' abilities.

With CLT assessments, you can feel confident that the education you've chosen is equipping your child to succeed academically and beyond.

"My eldest did significantly better on the CLT® than the ACT®, enough to qualify for higher merit-based scholarships."

Suzanne J., Homeschool Parent 

In recent years CLT has become the preferred assessment provider for thousands of homeschool families and co-op groups. CLT's 3rd-12th grade assessments are all norm-referenced, fulfilling end-of-year testing requirements for homeschoolers in a majority of states.

Assessing reading, grammar, writing, and mathematics, CLT assessments emphasize critical thinking, feature meaningful reading content, and better reflect a traditional education.
