The Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science is beginning its spring recruiting tour of Kansas.

Students who complete KAMS receive a high school diploma from their high school and receive a minimum of 68 hours of college credit from FHSU. Tuition, fees and books for 68 credit hours are free for students attending a Kansas public high school.

The sessions are free, and students who are beginning the seventh grade through sophomore year in high school are encouraged to attend. Space is limited, so the academy asks that parents RSVP by going to the website, www.fhsu.edu/kams/information-Sessions/

Students and their parents can also schedule individual visits by contacting the KAMS office at 785-628-4690.

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.
