Director's Update


 A Glimse Into the KAMS “Vanguards” and where they are looking at attending this next year. We have 26 students in the “Vanguard” class who will be completing the Academy in May.

At this point we have students looking at going to eleven different schools to continue their education. Many have received large scholarship offers and been accepted into outstanding programs. We are extremely proud of these students and their accomplishments. These students will make a huge positive impact on the future of the state and the country.
Five “Vanguard” students will remain at Fort Hays State University (FHSU). There are six of the students who will further their education at the University of Kansas (KU). Three students will be moving on to Kansas State University (KSU). We will also see our third KAMS student move on to Wichita State University (WSU).

One of our current students as well as one of our former students has been accepted into the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine in the UMKC B.A./M.D. program. Another one of our students plans to attend Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey. We have students attending Boston University, Saint Louis University, Rochester University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Virginia Tech, William Jewel College, New York University, and the University of Colorado at Bouler. We believe that more prestigious schools will soon be added to the list. Wow!

 As always we would love to have you come visit with our students and see the Academy in action. We can be contacted by phone at (785) 628-4690, email at, or you can visit our website at
