State early-entry-to-college program will have informational session in Bonner Sunday
The Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science at Fort Hays State University will have six informational sessions for potential high school participants this month, including one in Bonner Springs.
KAMS is the state’s premier early-entry-to-college program for high school juniors and seniors, focusing on strong academics, hands-on research opportunities, a vibrant on-campus living community, and leadership opportunities. Students in the Academy stay enrolled in their high school but live on the FHSU campus and take college courses to complete their last two years of high school.
Students who complete KAMS receive a high school diploma from their high school and receive a minimum of 68 hours of college credit from FHSU. Tuition, fees and books are free for students attending a Kansas public high school.
One of the free sessions is set this weekend, 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 12, at the Bonner Springs City Library, 201 N. Nettleton Ave. This is the only free session in the Kansas City metro area.
The sessions are free, and students who are beginning the seventh grade through sophomore year in high school are encouraged to attend. Space is limited, so the academy asks that parents RSVP by going to fhsu.edu/kams/meetings or by calling 785-628-4690.
