Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science staff will continue their fall informational and recruitment tour of Kansas with four trips in October.
A postcard from KAMS Director Ron Keller recently went out to all Kansas high school students, inviting them to attend one of the free informational sessions scheduled for October.
Students who complete KAMS receive a high school diploma from their high school and receive a minimum of 68 hours of college credit from Fort Hays State University. Tuition, fees and books for 68 credit hours at KAMS are free for students attending a Kansas public high school.

KAMS is the state’s premier early-entry-to-college program for high school juniors and seniors, focusing on strong academics, hands-on research opportunities, a vibrant on-campus living community and leadership opportunities. Students in the academy stay enrolled in their high school but live on the FHSU campus and take college courses to complete their last two years of high school.
