College Board Advanced Placement® (AP®) Examinations

The College Board, founded in 1900, is a national, not-for-profit association representing more than 5,900 colleges, universities and schools. The College Board is committed to increasing the number of students who earn a college degree and are prepared to succeed in the 21st century. Today's College Board works with middle schools, high schools, community colleges, four-year colleges, policymakers and state education agencies to achieve this mission. Our work falls broadly into three categories: College Readiness: The College Board seeks to ensure that every student has access to a high-quality education and is prepared to succeed in college. Our College Readiness initiatives promote curricula, assessment tools, district and guidance resources that help K-12 students prepare for the academic rigors of higher education. Through Advanced Placement courses and exams, high school students can earn college credit and advanced placement.

College Connection and Success: The College Board helps students connect with and successfully complete a high-quality college education. We provide resources, tools and services to students, parents, colleges and universities in the areas of college planning, recruitment and admissions, financial aid and retention. The SAT and Student Search Service programs have helped millions of students learn about colleges, apply and enroll. Advocacy: The College Board is a leading advocate and resource for excellence and equity in education. We invest in students' futures by promoting high academic standards; supporting educators; and building critical connections between policy, research and real-world experience to drive systemic reform in education.
