Fort Hays State University tour to stop in Bonner Springs

BONNER SPRINGS, KAN. ----- Staff from the Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science at Fort Hays State University will make nine trips in a second series of informational and recruitment tours fall.

One trip will be to the Bonner Springs Public Library on Nov. 5.

A postcard from KAMS recently went out to Kansas high school students inviting them to attend one of the informational sessions. KAMS students 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.

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.

Tuition, fees and textbooks are provided by KAMS for up to 18 credit hours per semester for students currently attending a public school in Kansas. This is provided through state funding and state appropriations.

Full time and date for the local visit:

Bonner Springs, Nov. 5, 6 p.m.
Bonner Springs Public Library
201 N. Nettleton
