Leo Budy was one of 27 high school sophomores throughout the state of Kansas who accepted an invitation to join the first inaugural class of the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science. The pioneer class of KAMS will report this August.
KAMS is a premier early-entry-to-college program in Kansas. The Kansas Legislature established the academy in 2006. It provides exceptional 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; the option to receive an associate’s degree upon graduation; 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 math or science
