Naperville Christian Academy Receives National Award for the CLT8
January 24, 2023
The CLT8 is a diagnostic or benchmark assessment offered by the Classic Learning Test and designed for 7th and 8th graders. Evaluating reading, grammar, and mathematical skills, the CLT8 provides a comprehensive measure of achievement and aptitude and engages students with thoughtful content drawn from classic literature and historical texts.
Since its inception in 2016, Classic Learning Test has offered assessments steeped in more intellectually rich and rigorous content than other standardized tests. Out of the hundreds of schools that take the CLT8 every year, Naperville Christian Academy is thrilled to receive this distinguished recognition and to celebrate this remarkable achievement.

ALL BUT ONE of Naperville Christian Academy’s graduates returned in December to reunite at their old school and talk about their college experience. The Grads shared thoughtful insight with parents, teachers, and friends into what attending NCA did for their studies, their outlooks, and their lives. The Naperville Daily Herald covered the event and published a great story about the Class of 2013, our first two graduates who will graduate from college this year. Read all about it here.
For those who couldn’t make it to hear our past graduates speak in December, we’ve posted the full video on NCA’s You Tube channel. We are working on preparing a highlight reel to post on Facebook.

Heather MacIntyre Achieves Top ACT Score
May 22, 2015
Heather MacIntyre, daughter of John and Kim MacIntyre and a junior at Naperville Christian Academy (NCA), earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Heather is the second NCA student to earn a perfect score in three years. This is made even more significant by the fact that Heather is one of only 12 students from NCA’s first four graduating classes. The school’s average composite ACT score to date is 30.8, well above local, state, and national averages.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, “While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.”
ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
