The College Board is an examination board in the United States that was formed in 1900 as the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB). It manages many different standardized tests used by academically oriented post-secondary education institutions to measure a student's ability. The SAT, the most well-known of these, along with the ACT, is a test widely used for admission to universities in the United States. The College Board is headquartered in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City.[1] The current president and CEO of the College Board is Gaston Caperton, the former governor of West Virginia.

In addition to managing tests, the College Board works with programs that claim to increase achievement by poor and minority middle and high school students. Funded by grants from various foundations, such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the College Board Schools operate autonomously within New York City public school buildings. A similar program named EXCELerator began a pilot program for the 2006–2007 school year at 11 schools in Washington, DC, Jacksonville/Duval County, FL, and Chicago Public Schools.[2] Both of these school reform programs use the SpringBoard and CollegeEd materials as part of their programs.

The college boards should be dismantled under anti trust laws because they violate those laws. They are the only major college assessment test systems. in short they are the only option that colleges have to asses future student abilities, by a similar fashion. because of this they should be dismantled in much the same way that standard oil was.
