Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science



The priority deadline to apply for the 2018-2019 school year is December 15. We are also continuing early admission so any student who will be a freshman for the 2018-2019 school year may also apply.  

We do not provide financial aid. However, KAMS is offering two scholarships - - a needs-based scholarship and the Peter and Pamela Werth scholarship. Please email to request information for the needs-based scholarship. You may also look into Sallie Mae.

What is the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science?

The Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science (KAMS), established by legislative action in 2006 by SB139, is the state’s premier academic high school program for the state’s best and brightest high school students. Based in part after successful programs in Missouri and Texas, KAMS is a unique residential learning experience that provides exceptional high school juniors and seniors a potent 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.

If you are interested in applying to be part of the KAMS Class of 2020 or 2021 (for early admission), click on U.S. Application. You may also fill out the first two pages of the application online. If you are an international student interested in applying, please click on International applications.

This fall marks the ninth year that KAMS students join the FHSU community. These exceptional students represent urban, suburban and rural communities from across the state. 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.

Why is KAMS important for Kansas?

  • KAMS adds educational value for students who might not be appropriately challenged in their local schools by providing early access to Kansas’ exceptional post-secondary educational resources.
  • KAMS enhances the intellectual capital of the State of Kansas through its curricular and co-curricular focus on mathematics and science.
  • KAMS collaborates with Kansas Regents universities to encourage graduates to complete their undergraduate education in-state.
