FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Thirteen Kentucky high schools are taking
part in a pilot program this week to encourage more seniors to
apply to college.
Kentucky College Application Week runs through Friday.
The program is sponsored by the Kentucky Higher Education
Assistance Authority, a state agency that administers financial aid
programs and information about higher education. The program is
specifically targeted toward students who may be the first in their
families to apply to college and need some hands-on help.
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.
