The Advanced Placement (AP*) Program
is governed by the College Board. There are over 30 college-level
courses available, most of which are offered in our local Kentucky high
schools. Students take an end-of course exam and, based on their numerical score, may be awarded college credit for the course.

AP/IP Exam Fee Update
For several years, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has
been able to provide funding to pay for AP and IB exam fees for
low-income students, allowing these students to take exams free of
charge. This was made possible through a generous grant from the United
States Department of Education (USDOE). This year, however, USDOE has
informed all state agencies that there will most likely NOT be
sufficient funding for these exam fees. This is still in discussion at a
federal level (given the conversations regarding the fiscal cliff) and
we will probably not know how much funding, if any, will be awarded for
the grant until March or April. Local schools and districts should be
prepared to assist low-income students, as much as possible, in paying
for AP/IB exams.
