Awards are available for secondary schools nationwide for outstanding commitment to providing their student body with opportunities for success. The award is provided to give recognition and support to those schools that enable students to pursue higher education options and thereby open the doors for them to experience a productive future.

The College Board Inspiration Awards celebrate the extraordinary commitment of educators and communities to their students' futures. Despite sometimes overwhelming odds, these outstanding schools are taking remarkable steps to give their students the bright futures they deserve.

Each spring the College Board presents Inspiration Awards to three of America's most improved secondary schools. Award-winning schools are recognized for their outstanding college-preparation programs and partnerships among teachers, parents and community organizations. Through their dedication and commitment, these school communities have opened doors to higher education for students facing economic, social and cultural barriers by:

* Improving their academic environment
* Creating a college-going culture
* Helping a significant proportion of students realize the promise of higher education
