Advanced Placement program expanding in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) - Governor Robert Bentley is announcing an expansion to one of the state's most successful college preparation programs.

20 Alabama high schools are joining the A-plus College Ready Advanced Placement Program. Students who score well on the AP tests earn college credit while in high school.

The group that gives the AP tests says more students from Alabama's public schools are succeeding than ever before.
