More than 12-thousand Kentucky public high school graduates took an Advanced Placement Exam last year according to new data released today by the College Board. That represents a 74% increase from the graduating class in Kentucky five years ago. AP courses are more rigorous than typical high school classes and many universities offer students college credit for earning a qualifying score on the end-of-year exam.  Trevor Packer is senior vice president of the Advanced Placement Program.
