KAMS is an early-entry 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. College classes are taken alongside traditional college undergraduates and taught by college professors, while simultaneously contributing to high school graduation requirements.
