Special to the HDN

Thirty-one students from Kansas, South Korea and China have been accepted for the fifth class of the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science on the Fort Hays State University campus. The class began its two-year curriculum on Aug. 19.

KAMS provides a unique residential learning experience for select high school juniors and seniors. Prospective students must have completed at least two years of high school with distinction in mathematics or science. However, outstanding academic achievement is not the only criterion for acceptance. KAMS selects students based on drive, interest, maturity, stability, and personal and family commitment.

These students, who represent urban, suburban and rural communities from across the state, will earn a high school diploma from their sending school and 68 hours of college credit from FHSU.
