FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Thirteen Kentucky high schools are taking part in a pilot program this week to encourage more seniors to apply to college.

The participating schools are Barren, Caldwell, Casey, Greenup, LaRue, Trimble, Union and Woodford county high schools, as well as East Ridge in Pike County, Lynn Camp in Knox County, Warren Central in Warren County and Southern High School Magnet Career Academy and Western MST Magnet High School in Jefferson County.
