The Impact of The Classical Renewal Movement on Higher Education

The classical renewal movement has become a disruptive force in higher education. Students who graduate from classical Christian schools stand out among their peers and become leaders on campus. Colleges are more eager than ever to find and recruit these students. e growing influence of the classical renewal movement comes with the responsibility of doing everything in our power to refocus colleges and universities on the timeless truths that were once the foundation of academic inquiry.

Taking Classical Mainstream

Classical educators should be the ones to set new standards of excellence for the entire nation. Currently, classical schools have to defer to the standardized tests of the failing educational establishment. These standards, especially as seen in the SAT and ACT, communicate to students and families that the most salient features of classical schools are irrelevant. For many colleges, the CLT is quickly becoming the new gold standard. Because the CLT evaluates a student’s ability to understand philosophy, logic, theology and ethics, it is a more effective tool in demonstrating to colleges the exceptional academic formation of classically educated students.
