Excellence for All (formerly Board Examination Systems)
This program, previously known as the Board Examination Systems program, was recently renamed Excellence for All. We think this new name captures the essence of the program. Excellence for All incorporates a clear, practical strategy enabling every student to graduate from high school prepared either to succeed in a four-year college or in a program of career and technical education leading to an industry-recognized certificate and a career that pays well. It does this by bringing the system of aligned instruction and examination used by best-performing countries to U.S. high schools.
