The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that clears a path for all students to own their future. Founded in 1900, it was created to expand access to higher education. From its earliest days, the College Board has devoted itself to educational opportunity and achievement. Named by Fast Company as one of the most innovative education companies, the College Board’s work falls broadly into four categories: college readiness, college connection and success, student opportunities, and advocacy.
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 more than seven million 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. The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators, and schools.
