The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit 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 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.
In keeping with its commitment to expand student access to higher education, College Board partners with HSF by leveraging its nationwide student database on HSF’s behalf. Using SAT and AP exam scores, College Board helps HSF locate top performing, rising Latino high school juniors and seniors who may be eligible for HSF programs and scholarships, so they can be informed and recruited as potential applicants.
In recognition of its support, College Board was named Education Partner of the Year at HSF’s annual Leaders in Education Awards gala, in 2018. The award is conferred on a strategic partner that exemplifies HSF’s goals and values, and in the case of College Board, through its extraordinary, proactive, and abiding support of HSF’s scholarships, programs, and support services.
