ETBU begins accepting the Classic Learning Test on enrollment applications

ETBU begins accepting the Classic Learning Test on enrollment applications

East Texas Baptist University recently partnered with Classic Learning
Initiatives (CLI) and joined the CLT College Network to begin accepting the
Classic Learning Test (CLT) scores submitted by prospective students as a
college admissions score. ETBU and CLI share a mission to provide students
from diverse educational backgrounds with the best opportunity to succeed in
the college admissions process.



"When we learned of the CLT, and after researching the test, ETBU leaders
knew it would be a great standardized test option for prospective Tigers,"
ETBU Vice President for Enrollment and Administrative Affairs Kevin Caffey
said. "With the growing number of homeschool and private school students
choosing ETBU, we found the CLT appropriate for the education they received
in high school. We expect it will provide an accurate measure of college
readiness as we determine admission for these students."



The CLT is a college entrance exam designed to showcase students' potential
in literature, science, and mathematics. As an accurate and rigorous measure
of reasoning, education, and academic formation, the CLT features passages
from great works across a variety of disciplines and cultures.



Founded in 2015 to provide alternative standardized testing rooted in
tradition and using modern technology, the CLT is administered online within
two hours and students receive same-day test results that can be shared
immediately with all partner institutions. The CLT also provides colleges
and secondary schools with the detailed information needed to make decisions
about admissions, curricula, and instruction.



"Classical learning has become such a renewed point of emphasis across
secondary and higher education, it makes sense to use a national assessment
to evaluate prior learning and readiness as a part of admission and awarding
of scholarships," ETBU Vice President for Academic Affairs Thomas Sanders
commented.



In addition to other academic merit scholarships ranging from $4,000 to
$16,000 per year, ETBU offers a one-time, $2,500 scholarship toward
students, who score within the top one percent of the CLT10, the official
preparatory assessment for the CLT primarily offered to ninth and
tenth-grade students.

DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS SCHOLARSHIP ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS SCHOLARSHIP ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Applications will be accepted through March 29, 2019

AUSTIN – The application process for the 2019 Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship contest is now open. Any Texas high school senior currently attending public, private or home school, and planning to attend an accredited Texas college or university in the coming year, is eligible to apply.

The 2019 Don’t mess with Texas Scholarship contest is presented in partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful and the Moody Foundation. The contest will award one $6,000 scholarship and two $2,000 scholarships in May 2019. The scholarships recognize the achievements of high school seniors who are taking an active role in preventing litter in their schools and communities while working to build awareness for the Don’t mess with Texas initiative.

“We are looking forward to hearing about the creative ways students are taking the Don’t mess with Texas message into their schools and their communities,” said Becky Ozuna, program administrator for TxDOT’s Don’t mess with Texas campaign. “Over the years, the scholarship contest has proven to be a catalyst for jump starting innovative litter prevention programs across the state, thanks to the efforts and leadership of Texas students.”

TxDOT’s Don’t mess with Texas program has been educating Texans about litter prevention since 1986. The program includes Adopt-a-Highway and a grassroots partnership with Keep Texas Beautiful as well as spring “Trash-Off” community outreach events. Applications must be received via online submission by 5 p.m. (CST) March 29, 2019.
