Drawing on more than a century of experience by the College Board in guiding students on the way to college, the CollegeEd program provides lessons and activities meant to help students evolve the skills needed to meet their goals. In collaboration with Roadtrip NationCollegeEd gives students the chance to "explore their aspirations and set long-term goals to get them on the path to higher education and a successful career."
Lessons written by experienced counselors and AP teachers are organized around three consistent themes: "Who Am I?", "Where Am I Going?" and "How Do I Get There?" 
CollegeEd offers flexible options for teaching, implementation, and family involvement. The program consists of three levels, each with its own student workbook and accompanying educator guide:
  • Grades 7-8 gets students thinking about the path to college.
  • Grades 9-10 has engaging activities to help students discover their interests and begin planning for college.
  • Grades 11-12 guides students through the college search and application processes.
CollegeEd materials can be used online and are also provided as downloadable, printable PDFs. Materials are also available in Spanish.
* The CollegeEd program is based on standards developed by the College Board, the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and ASCA.
