The Academy of Mathematics and Science (AMS)

The Academy of Mathematics and Science (AMS) is one of two early entry-to-college programs at Fort Hays State University. The Academy of Mathematics and Science (AMS) was established as an early entry college program in 2018 and is designed for high school aged students from around the world.

AMS is a unique residential learning experience that provides exceptional high school juniors and seniors a potent blend of:

  • college-level instruction by Ph.D. faculty;
  • students earn an Associate of General Studies (A.G.S.) in Science from Fort Hays State University;
  • a high school diploma and over 60 hours of college credit;
  • hands-on research supervised by Ph.D.-level faculty;
  • leadership development and civic engagement opportunities;
  • co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities to develop the whole student;
  • a safe campus and residential environment; and trained support staff

Students in both the AMS and KAMS programs enroll in the same classes, conduct research together, live in the same residence halls, join forces for athletic and academic competitions, and participate in the same clubs and organizations.

**During the Summer of 2018, The International Academy of Mathematics and Science (IAMS) was changed to The Academy of Mathematics and Science (AMS) at Fort Hays State University **
