Counselor Resources

The College Board recognizes and appreciates the work that school counselors complete on a daily basis. We know your time is limited and is best spent with your students – not searching for the information you need.  We are thrilled to be able to provide a one-stop page, filled with easy to use, timely resources to help counselors carry out the hard work being performed throughout the school year. Hopefully the wide range of resources available on this site will not only make counselor’s jobs more manageable or useful, but will also enhance their professional work to help students make the most of the opportunities they have earned through their hard work.
