Information session offered for pre-college program

April 15, 2010

The Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science at Fort Hays State University will play host to an information session for students in ninth grade or younger and their families at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 18, at the Bonner Springs City Library, 201 N. Nettleton Ave.

KAMS is the only early-entry-to-college program in Kansas. The program is a residential learning experience that provides high school juniors and seniors a blend of college-level instruction by Ph.D. faculty; a high school diploma and 68 hours of college credit; hands-on research supervised by Ph.D. scientists; 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.

Prospective KAMS students must have completed at least two years of high school with distinction in mathematics or science. A composite score of 23 on the ACT or a 1060 score on the SAT is required. KAMS also selects students based on drive, interest, maturity, stability and personal and family commitment.

Recruitment sessions will address the academic program, admissions requirements, student development opportunities and other key topics.

The public is welcome, but seating is limited, and registration is required. To register, go to For more information, call (785) 628-4690 or e-mail
