“Fairfax County has been a great home for The College Board,” said Jeremy Singer, chief operating officer at The College Board. “Our team in Reston will continue to play a critical role in our efforts to a clear a path for students in Virginia and across the country to own their futures.”

Each year, The College Board helps more than 7 million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success, including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program. The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators, and schools.

“The College Board is one of the best-known examples of more than 270 industry and trade associations that have a presence in Fairfax County and benefit from a highly educated workforce and location close to Washington, DC,” said Gerald L. Gordon, Ph.D., president and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “I am proud to see this organization, which has a critical role in our nation’s higher education system, grow here and take advantage of the brainpower and other assets that draw associations here.”

The FCEDA worked with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership to secure the project for Virginia. Governor Ralph Northam approved a $750,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Opportunity Fund to assist the county with the project.
