Classic Learning Test

Each year, Classic Learning Test recognizes top performers on the CLT10, our college preparatory exam and alternative to the PSAT. Distinguished Scholars are those who earned the top score at their respective school, Regional Scholars landed in the top 5% of their respective region, and National Award recipients are the top 50 high school sophomores across the United States.


National Award recipients are awarded a $2,500 scholarship to help cover the cost of tuition and room and board at any CLT Partner College. Beginning with 2023 National Award recipients (graduating in 2025), this scholarship is also applicable at any school with an “A” or “B” grade from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni.

More than 100 colleges have tied scholarship dollars directly to CLT scores, including most of the Newman Guide Recommended Colleges.

Visit the CLT website to view the list of these colleges and click on direct links to each website for individual details.

Several NG Colleges are now test-optional, but students are greatly encouraged to take and submit CLT test scores in order to be considered or improve their eligibility for various scholarships.
