KAMS to offer free information sessions in fall 2018

HAYS, Kan. – Free information sessions regarding Fort Hays State University’s Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science will be offered across the state for seventh graders through high school sophomores and their families. Staff from the program will host the 11 sessions in October and November.

KAMS is an early-entry-to-college program that focuses on advanced mathematics and science. While studying at KAMS, students live on campus in a select residence hall with other KAMS students from across Kansas and around the world.

Over the course of two years, students complete over 60 hours of college credit. These college classes are taken alongside traditional college undergraduates and taught by college professors while simultaneously contributing to their high school graduation requirements.
