CLT Nationally Ranked School

CLT Top High Schools 2020

Paideia Academy has been named in the top 25 of over 1,200 schools utilizing the Classic Learning Test (CLT). CLT recently announced its first high school rankings. Below is the announcement from the CLT:


Since 2016, more than 30,000 students from over 1,200 schools have taken the Classic Learning Test (CLT, CLT10, or CLT8). Typical CLT test takers are well above average academically and they come from some of the best high schools in the nation.

After nearly four years of gathering data and growing our base, the CLT is proud to release our first school rankings. Many different ways exist to rank schools: graduation rates, student satisfaction surveys, size of endowment, elite college acceptance rates, etc. Our ranking is an attempt to directly measure education quality. Given the CLT’s level of rigor, high performance on the CLT serves as a strong indicator of excellence in a secondary school.

While these rankings are national in scope, the CLT will release rankings at the city, regional, and state levels in 2020 to help parents who are searching for schools of excellence in their own community.

Congratulations on a job well done, Paideia Academy students!
