College Board Middle School Services
College Board connects students in middle school to college preparation with its CollegeEd program.  Each grade 7 student in BCPS participates in CollegeEd.  This is a program which allows students to electronically explore and identify their values, interests, and academic capabilities along with matching these to possible career choices.

College Board High School Services
The BCPS and College Board partnership established an annual College Board Strategic Professional Development Plan which provides training and services for teachers, counselors, administrators, and students to increase rigorous instruction and connections to college. All Grade 10 and 11 students have the opportunity to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Tests (PSAT) in BCPS. The PSAT serves as a precursor regarding students’ potential to take rigorous courses and later to perform well on the Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SAT).  College Board provides the PSAT/NMQST, a qualifying test, which is used in the competitive National Merit Scholarships. College Board programs include Advanced Placement  courses and (AP) Exams.   Students receive college credit when they pass AP exams.

College Readiness Options:  ACT and IB
In the 2011 graduating AVID class, 95% of the students applied to colleges and universities earning more than 12.2 million dollars in scholarships.
