Assessment within the Classical Christian Tradition
Join CLT founder, Jeremy Tate, Dr. Brian Williams, Dean of the Templeton Honors College at Eastern University, and Leslie Moeller, Board Member of SCL, for a comprehensive panel discussion covering assessment in the Classical Christian classroom.
Jeremy Tate is a former college admissions test prep consultant and counselor. Alarmed by the lack of logic- and philosophy-based subject matter in the two dominant forms of entrance exams, he founded the Classic Learning Test (CLT) as a means of restoring the foundations of Western education. Serving in the same capacity as his prior roles, Tate applies his knowledge to the CLT mission of reconnecting intellectual pursuit and virtue. He is a graduate of Louisiana State University and Reformed Theological Seminary, and has four children.
Leslie Moeller is the Chairman of the Board of the Society for Classical Learning and has served on the SCL Board for 12 of the last 14 years. She currently consults with Classical, Christian schools across the nation in the areas of leadership, administrative function, and governance. She is a member of the Board of New Covenant Schools in Lynchburg, Virginia, and the Board of Academic Advisors for the Classic Learning Test. Most recently, she helped lead a three year restructuring of the Upper School at the Covenant School in Charlottesville, Virginia. Prior to her family’s move to Virginia in 2015, she spent 13 years at Geneva School of Boerne where she served in multiple roles including Chairman of the Board, Head of School, Capital Campaign Co-Chairman, founder and coach of Geneva’s nationally-ranked debate program and Senior Thesis instructor. She received her Juris Doctor from Boston College Law School and her Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature and Economics from the University of Virginia. Leslie and her husband, Eric, have three children.
