GRAPEVINE — Holy Trinity Catholic School in Grapevine was named one of the top ten schools in Classic Learning Test’s 2022-2023 CLT8 school rankings. This award recognizes Holy Trinity students for collectively receiving one of the highest average scores in the nation on the CLT8 during the 2022-2023 academic year. 

Holy Trinity Principal Karen Ullman said, “Not only is Holy Trinity the only school in the entire Dallas - Fort Worth area to make the rankings list, but we placed 10th nationally! This achievement reflects the hard work, dedication, and exceptional abilities of our students, as well as the unwavering support from our dedicated faculty and staff.”

Each year, hundreds of schools nationwide participate in the CLT assessments, which serve as a benchmark for academic achievement. Holy Trinity eighth graders participated in this exam, alongside many other classical schools in the area.

The CLT8 is a diagnostic and summative assessment offered by Classic Learning Test and designed for seventh and eighth graders. Evaluating reading, grammar, and mathematical skills, the CLT8 engages students with content drawn from classic literature and historical texts and provides a comprehensive measure of achievement and aptitude.

Launched in 2016, Classic Learning Test’s suite of assessments now serves grades 3-12. Out of the hundreds of schools that take the CLT8 every year, Holy Trinity Catholic School’s ranking is a remarkable achievement.

“We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Holy Trinity community — students, parents, teachers, and administrators — for contributing to this remarkable success,” continued Ullman. “It is through the collaborative efforts of each individual that we continue to uphold our commitment to providing a high-quality classical education while putting formation of character and virtue in the forefront.”
