“The Classic Learning Test is in the traditions of the best entrance examinations ever made; it reveals how well prepared the students are to engage the greatest minds in our Western intellectual tradition. For those of us who teach in schools and homeschools ordered to the same end, whose students are being formed in that tradition, both this test and the book that explains its concept are real gifts.” – Laura Berquist, author of Designing Your Own Clasical Curriculum

“A must read for anyone in education or admissions who is brave enough to admit that things aren’t quite right in higher education any more.” Robert Bortins, CEO, Classical Conversations

“A Better Admissions Test certainly addresses a key question: What should a college entrance exam look like? This work takes the question further to rethink the very essence of education. While the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests double down on the very principles that are degrading American education, it’s high time for a refreshing new direction.” – David Goodwin, President of The Association of Classical Christian Schools

“…we applaud the Classic Learning Initiative and affirm the Classic Learning Test as a robust and relevant answer to our culture’s obsession with modern standardized college entrance examinations. We commend these tools to all who are committed to an educational renaissance…” – Ralph E. Enlow, Jr., President, The Association for Biblical Higher Education

“Everyone I know is dissatisfied with college entrance exams, especially religious people and those who love the liberal arts and the classics of our civilization. That is why it is hard to cheer loudly enough for this rousingly good experiment in a solid alternative. The number of schools using this alternative is growing, and we can feel confident that in a year or two its rate of growth will have bloomed.” Michael Novak, Professor, former United States Ambassador, and recipient of the 2016 Abraham Lincoln Literary Award
