HAYS – Staff from Fort Hays State University's Kansas Academy of Mathematics and Science will host free information sessions across the state for seventh-graders through high school sophomores and their families in October and November.

All information sessions are free and open to the public.

The academy offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a head start on their college educations (up to 68 credit hours).

Students and their parents can learn about KAMS and visit with representatives from the academy. Registration can be by phone, 785-628-4719, or by visiting the registration website at http://www.fhsu.edu/kams/Info-session-registration/.

The meeting in this area will be at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Salina Public Library, Prescott Meeting Room, located at 301 Elm St. in Salina.

KAMS is an early-entry-to-college program that focuses on advanced mathematics and science. While studying at KAMS, students live on campus in a select residence hall with other KAMS students from across Kansas and around the world. Over the course of two years, students take 68 hours of college credit. These college classes are taken alongside traditional college undergraduates and taught by college professors while simultaneously contributing to their high school graduation requirements.
