The College Board for the Press
The College Board is a mission-driven, not-for-profit membership organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. Founded in 1900, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. Today, the membership association is made up of over 6,000 of the world's leading educational institutions and is dedicated to promoting excellence and equity in education.
Each year, the College Board helps millions of students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success — including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program®.
College Board programs serve K-12 and higher education institutions, providing students a path to college opportunities, financial support and scholarships. Through our work in middle schools, high schools and colleges, we serve more than seven million students and parents; 3,800 colleges and universities; people in 180 countries and territories, and policymakers on the national and state levels.
To serve the education community, the organization conducts research and advocates on behalf of students, educators and schools.
