Form B The College Board: Connecting Students to College Success
The College Board is a notforprofit membership association whose mission is to connect students to college success and
opportunity. Founded in 1900, the association is composed of more than 5,000 schools, colleges, universities, and other
educational organizations. Each year, the College Board serves seven million students and their parents, 23,000 high schools, and
3,500 colleges through major programs and services in college admissions, guidance, assessment, financial aid, enrollment, and
teaching and learning. Among its bestknown programs are the SAT®, the PSAT/NMSQT®, and the Advanced Placement
Program® (AP®). The College Board is committed to the principles of excellence and equity, and that commitment is embodied
in all of its programs, services, activities, and concerns. © 2006 The College Board. All rights reserved. College Board, AP Central, APCD, Advanced Placement Program, AP, AP
